How Housing Solutions can help you

If you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, please use our Housing Concerns Form to find out what help and support we can provide. Unfortunately, we can’t provide accommodation to everyone. How much help you can get will depend on your circumstances: you may get housing or personal advice from us to help you find or keep your home. If we can’t provide you with housing, we will always offer advice and guidance on what you can do.

Housing Concerns Form

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. 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 also supports and helps residents to address debt and housing worries and is available for a confidential discussion, More information is on the MK Citizens Advice website.
