Council Tenants 

The Housing Service manages around 6,500 council properties in towns and villages throughout the district. Chigwell, Loughton, Waltham Abbey, Epping and Ongar have some larger estates. The Council Tenants pages cover: repairs and improvements to council properties, housing management, buying your home from the council and tenant involvement. 

Housing Advice 

We offer advice on a wide range of housing issues. You may be looking for accommodation in the district, or you may be looking for assistance to help you stay in the home where you live now. The Housing Advice pages cover: applying to the council for housing and homelessness prevention, housing associations, housing services for older people, advice for owner occupiers, private tenants, landlords and residents of caravan or park home sites.
