Unfortunately we are currently experiencing a high volume of housing applications causing a delay in assessments of up to 4 months.  We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and would like to ensure our customers that assessing new applications is being given our utmost priority.

Thank you for your patience during this time.


During the Christmas and New Year period, Keyways will operate a 2 week cycle.  This will mean any properties advertised will be from Thursday 23 December 2021 to Tuesday 4 January 2022.

We would like to thank all our customers for your patience during a time where the Keyways team have transitioned to working from home, the re-registration programme when we became North Northamptonshire Council and aligning our services across 4 localities.  We are working hard to continue to improve our services and address the backlog of applications that are awaiting assessment.

We take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for 2022.
