Invite to propose changes for the 2022/23 CORE Lettings and Sales forms


We are seeking your views on changes to the CORE Lettings and Sales forms for the 2022/23 reporting year, i.e. for tenancies and sales taking place between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023.

The aim of this annual review is to understand emerging policy needs for CORE data and balance these against the burden on data providers of supplying information to central government.

CORE data is an essential tool for developing, implementing and monitoring policy on housing supply, affordability, allocations, homelessness and more.

Changes to the CORE forms might be additions, removals or amendments to questions, response options, guidance or functionality of the online system.

We are also particularly interested in your experiences answering the income, benefits and homelessness questions and any suggestions for improvements to these.

Please complete this form by Friday 22 October -

If you would like to discuss in more detail, please email and we will be happy to help.

Thank you for your contributions to CORE. Without you, we cannot provide essential services to help vulnerable people in need of housing.
