Providers funded by the GLA are required to advertise their LLR properties on the GLA's London-wide portal.

Where there is more than one eligible applicant, providers should determine priority through use of a local intermediate waiting list (if one exists) or by using a priority group or groups identified by the local borough.

Providers will be expected to satisfy themselves that households can afford to both pay the rent (without recourse to Housing Benefit) and accumulate savings, using standard affordability tests.
