These properties remain under lease to Crown Housing until December 2014. It is my understanding that tenants were informed from the outset that these leases were time limited and that this was not a long term arrangement.

Crown Housing is working with each tenant to establish whether they have alternative accommodation that they could offer. I have also been in contact with Merton Council and asked that the Council's Housing Services make tenants aware of further support arrangements, where applicable.

In order to obtain the latest information I suggest that you directly contact Crown Housing and Merton Council.
