Housing options for people with housing issues

The Housing Options team's priority is to keep you in your home and to explore your other housing options. We provide a whole range of services from advice to households who find themselves in a housing crisis, intervening to prevent homelessness and managing housing applications.

We offer advice for a wide range of circumstances, including:

  • being asked to leave by family or friends
  • break up of a relationship
  • domestic violence/domestic abuse
  • leaving hospital
  • leaving prison
  • mortgage arrears and house repossession
  • notice to quit or notice seeking possession received from landlord
  • redundancy or loss of earnings
  • rent arrears from the council, Housing Association or private landlord
  • eviction
  • benefit entitlements (housing benefit and council tax support)
  • rough sleeping

Further information

We have published a series of housing option booklets and information to guide you through your housing options. You can also find out about applying for a council home and North Yorkshire Home Choice, a choice-based letting scheme.
