If your expression of interest is not successful this could be for a variety of reasons. You may not meet the allocation criteria for the property, your application may not be active or there may be a problem with the website. If you require further information regarding an unsuccessful expression of interest you should contact the Housing Needs Unit on: 020 8921 2941
