REMINDER! 2021/22 CORE Collection Closedown - Friday 3rd June 2022

09/05/2022

The CORE online collection closedown deadline for 2021/22 data for both lettings and sales will close in around 4 weeks’ time on Friday 3rd June 2022.

There will not be a soft deadline for this collection; this will be the final cut-off and logs should not be submitted or amended after this date.

Please submit all of your 2021/22 lettings and sales logs. You should also revisit your ‘Saved’ and ‘Invalid’ log records to ensure they submit as valid, where appropriate. You can download your invalid logs by selecting ‘Administration’ and then ‘Your Logs’. Guidance on how to do this is available from our 2021/22 CORE Online user guidance - Co-ordinators document, available from our 'Guides and Manuals' page.

If you have had queries sent to the CORE Helpdesk on this matter, please be aware that they will be attended to. Otherwise, and for any further queries, the CORE Helpdesk can be contacted at the customer portal: https://digital.dclg.gov.uk/jira/servicedesk/customer/portal/4/group/21 - (please choose the appropriate query type) or by telephone (0333 202 5084, available 09:00 - 17:30 on weekdays).

Quarterly cut-off dates for 2022/23

09/05/2022

Please note that the quarterly CORE cut-off dates for the 2022/23 reporting year are as follows:

Q1 - Friday 15th July 2022 (for all new tenancies and sales starting between 1st April 2022 and 30th June 2022);

Q2 - Friday 14th October 2022 (for all new tenancies and sales starting between 1st July 2022 and 30th September 2022);

Q3 - Friday 13th January 2023 (for all new tenancies and sales starting between 1st October 2022 and 31st December 2022).

End-of-year hard deadline: Q4 plus all remaining 2022/23 logs - Friday 9th June 2023 (final cut-off for 2022/23 - i.e. 2022/23 Q4 plus any late submissions).

These quarterly cut-off dates are important as DLUHC 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.
