    Home moves

    All tenants on the Love Lane Estate will eventually need to move for High Road West to go ahead. Tenants do not have to move until their block is required for demolition. Most tenants will be able to move straight to a new home built in High Road West. We aim to keep temporary moves to a minimum.

    What happens if I want to move now?

    All Love Lane secure tenants who want to be re-housed need to complete a housing needs assessment with their Re-housing Officer. The assessment is compulsory and will be used to determine what your rehousing needs are.

    Once your needs assessment is completed you will be placed in Housing needs Band A.
    A letter will be sent to you with your housing reference number, your personal identification number and the size of the property that you are entitled to.

    You will be able to bid on Haringey Council Choice based lettings scheme Home Connections for properties of your choice.

    If you are a non-secure tenant in temporary accommodation, you will maintain your existing priority on the housing register when bidding for homes elsewhere in the borough.
