Change of circumstances

Tell us about changes to your family like a new baby by following the processes outlined below

If you have a change of circumstance to your housing application you can let us know in the following way:

  • If you have had a new baby, please send a copy of the full birth certificate to PO Box 34750, London N7 9WF

  • If you wish to let us know that there has been a relationship breakdown, a death in your family or that a child or children have left home you can send an email to rehousing@islington.gov.uk

  • If you want to tell us about a new partner or new adults joining your family you will need to notify your current landlord so that they can authorise them as members of your household.

  • If you have moved address in Islington and want to remain on the housing register you will need to complete a change of address form. 

Once we have received your information we will re assess your housing application and write to you with the outcome. This can take up to 6 weeks.

We cannot house most people once they become homeless. Our priority is to help you avoid becoming homeless in the first place. Find out what to do if you are concerned about homelessness.
