We have put together some housing factsheets on key housing issues. The factsheets provide a very basic summary of the issue, the possible actions you can take, and who to contact for further information.

We are currently reviewing a number of our factsheets. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact Housingline on 020 7361 3008 or email housing@rbkc.gov.uk.
