Introduction of References
Customers applying to join the Housing Register from the 7th November 2016 will 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. Please see this page for more details: Registration
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.
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.
