Housing Solutions and Homelessness Advice

If you're homeless or threatened with homelessness, we can help. We will always try to prevent you from becoming homeless in the first instance. We will aim to help you to stay in your current home, but if this isn't possible, we can help you explore other alternatives.

There is an incredibly short supply of affordable housing available in MK, the properties that are available to allocate tend to go to those households in greatest need.  

There are many ways we can try to help including mediating and negotiating with your family, referring you and your family to support services, checking if your Notice to Quit is valid and legal, liaising with your Landlord and helping you, in exceptional circumstances, with arrears and debt advice. We specialise in ensuring that tenancies are not ended and can assist with many aspects of tenancy advice, even if you feel you are homeless today or imminently.  If this fails, we will help you move into alternative accommodation in the private sector that is affordable to you. 

Emergency accommodation is far from an ideal move and every effort will be made to prevent or relieve your homelessness.

If you are threatened with homelessness, then please contact us or complete our Housing Concerns Form

A Homelessness Solutions Officer will then contact you to arrange a telephone or video call appointment. We provide face to face visits in exceptional circumstances only.

The Council wants to make homelessness prevention a priority for all.  Milton Keynes Citizens Advice supports and helps residents to address debt and housing worries and is available for a confidential discussion, More information is on their website.
