Deactivating User's Accounts after 18 Months


We are currently working to ensure we have accurate user details in our CORE system, as part of the CORE Quality Assurance process to ensure we keep up-to-date user details in the system and as part of our continued commitment to provide an efficient system to CORE users in general.

We will therefore be deactivating the accounts of all users (excluding Data Protection Officers accounts) who have not logged into the CORE system at any time over the past 18 months. All users who have recently, and continue to, log into their CORE accounts will not be affected by this new process.

We recommend that users who want to keep their account(s) active, should log into CORE now if they have not done so recently and ensure they do so regularly.

Users can contact their Coordinators or the CORE Helpdesk to reset their account(s) (if required) or use the reset password options on the CORE website.

Please note that this new process of deactivating users accounts who have not logged into the CORE system for the past 18 months will begin on the 28th September 2021 and continue on a monthly basis thereafter.

CORE Website Unavailable Tonight (Thursday 2nd September 2021) from 6.00pm until 8.00pm


With apologies for the short notice and to facilitate essential maintenance, the CORE website will not be available to users from 6.00pm until 8.00pm tonight (Thursday 2nd September 2021). During this time, the site cannot be used, so please ensure any work you are carrying out on CORE is saved well before 6.00pm tonight.

Quarterly cut-off dates for 2021/22


Please note that the quarterly CORE cut-off dates for the 2021/22 reporting year are as follows:

Q1 - Friday 10th September 2021 (for all new tenancies and sales starting between 1st April 2021 and 30th June 2021);

Q2 - Friday 15th October 2021 (for all new tenancies and sales starting between 1st July 2021 and 30th September 2021);

Q3 - Friday 14th January 2022 (for all new tenancies and sales starting between 1st October 2021 and 31st December 2021).

End-of-year hard deadline: Q4 plus all remaining 2021/22 logs - Friday 3rd June 2022 (final cut-off for 2021/22 - i.e. 2021/22 Q4 plus any late submissions).

These quarterly cut-off dates are important as MHCLG supplies weekly rents data on a quarterly basis to the Office for National Statistics to create high-profile Government inflation statistics.

It is also in users' interests to meet the quarterly cut-off as only logs submitted by the deadline will be included in the dataset that feeds into the analysis tools and reports - so, therefore, a high completion rate equates to higher quality output for users' own analysis. Earlier submission will also reduce the burden on users at the end of the year when finalising their annual dataset.

Whilst every effort should be made to meet the above quarterly cut-off dates, if this is not possible, logs for tenancies and/or sales within that quarter should still be submitted after the cut-off so they are included in the finalised annual data.
