COVID-19 Update 1st July 2021

Published: Thursday 1 July 2021

The Property Pool Plus Service and partner landlords are continuing to review our service provision and processes as the COVID-19 pandemic progresses and associated Government Guidance is updated.  The information below provides an update on the impact of the virus at this time on key elements of the service:

 

Increased Service Demand

As a result of COVID-19 we continue to experience a higher level of demand than normal.  Please assist us by only contacting your local Authority scheme administrator by one method so that we can deliver a high level of service to all our customers.

 

Applications

We continue to accept new applications which are to be made online.  If you require assistance with submitting an application, please contact your Local Authority scheme administrator whose details can be found on our Contact Us page.

 

Arrangements for Direct Offers of Accommodation for Homeless Cases

Due to the impact of COVID-19 a small number of properties continue to be prioritised for homelessness assistance.  Any properties not required will be allocated within usual PPP processes.  It should also be noted that other housing solutions are being sought for homeless households in addition to Social Housing such as accommodation in the private rented sector.  It is not anticipated that these arrangements will continue in the longer term and they will continue to be under regular review.

 

Weekly Property Advertising Cycle

We are continuing to run a weekly advertising cycle to include all properties available to be advertised and have announced changes to adverts on the PPP Changes July 2021 page.

 

Property Offers and Viewings

Our partner landlords are continuing to review and amend their processes in line with social distancing requirements which will continue to impact on property turnaround times and arrangements for property viewings and signups.  If you are matched to a property the individual landlords will provide you with information on approximate timescales when you will be able to occupy the property, therefore please direct any questions you have regarding the property to the individual landlords or visit the landlords websites for potential updates.  Please visit the Registered Provider page for links to partner landlord's own websites.  PPP will be unable to advise you on specific information relating to individual properties.

 

We appreciate that limited availability of accommodation is frustrating and disappointing.  However, this is outside our control and we can assure you that we are working towards resuming a normal level of service as quickly as possible.

Changes to the processes for allocating Magenta Living housing stock.

Published: Friday 29 June 2018

With effect from 1st July 2018, there will be changes to the way Magenta Living’s homes will be allocated. Currently the majority of vacancies are allocated via the Property Pool Plus Choice Based Lettings scheme, with a small percentage being allocated directly by Magenta Living.

Going forward a minimum of 75% of Magenta Living's homes which become available will be allocated through arrangements with Wirral Council. These properties will continue to be advertised on the Property Pool Plus Choice Based Letting system for bidding by registered applicants. The Council will then "Nominate" six applicants from the short list to Magenta Living which it considers to be the highest priority for housing according to the Property Pool Plus policy. Magenta Living will work through this priority list however, If the property remains un-allocated Magenta Living will proceed to let it through their own procedures.

A smaller proportion of available homes will be let by Magenta Living without reference to Council Nominations. Magenta Living will maintain its own waiting list and allocations policy which will be used to allocate these properties. For further detail on these homes visit www.magentaliving.org.uk.
