Upgrade to the Sheffield Property Shop
Since our online system was introduced we have been listening to your feedback to make improvements to the Sheffield Property Shop website.
We have concentrated particularly on the areas which you found most difficult to use and have been working to make this better. With this is mind, we are now in a position to introduce an updated, new look, Sheffield Property Shop website.
This update includes:
The new site will launch on 26/01/2017.
This upgrade does not affect your current housing application if you are already registered with us. You do not need to do anything with your application in order to use the new site, just log in as normal with your reference number and memorable date.
We hope you find the new site easier to use and we’d welcome any feedback you might have about the new layout.
Customers applying to join the Housing Register will now need to provide us with a tenancy reference.
The new requirement is part of the Council’s Allocations Policy and brings our procedures in line with other social landlords in the region.
It will give us information about a person’s tenancy history and help us:
Most new applicants will have to provide us with a tenancy reference. People who haven’t rented a property before can provide other types of references.
References should be submitted using the Sheffield City Council template available to download.
There is information available in our public offices and housing staff can answer questions or provide advice.
If you need any help with this please call us on 0114 205 3333.
If you have made changes to your application you may need to provide I.D. If I.D is required we will write asking you to provide this.
Please use this link for the list of acceptable I.D documents: I.D
Any I.D must be provided within 28 days of submitting the application or updating your details or your application will be cancelled and you will be required to submit it again.
You should take the I.D to a First Point or Housing Office. We will keep copies of your I.D whilst you are on our waiting list for a property to ensure against tenancy and housing benefit fraud.
If you are on the register for a long time, we may write to you and ask you to reproduce some current I.D, at which point we will delete the previous I.D from our systems.
Once you access a property with Sheffield City Council and have been a tenant for 6 months, we will destroy all copies of your I.D.
