Allocations within the JMB area
Currently Southwark has 15,000 families and its waiting list and 3,500 families in temporary accommodation. Southwark has total control over allocations within the JMB area.
The JMB does not have access to our tenants rehousing information, which means that our RSOs do not have the information to provide advice.
The JMB will get involved in rehousing issues for our tenants if:
- A tenant or family member are under the immediate threat of violence. The JMB will lead on the investigation and present Southwark with the facts for a decision
- A tenant has passed and a family member may have the right to succeed to tenancy. Again, the JMB will do the investigation for Southwark to make a decision.
In the past, we have worked with Southwark to move tenants to facilitate major repairs. The advice from Southwark is that there are so many disrepair cases that we should arrange temporary accommodation, rather than offer another flat.
