Gibraltar Residential Properties will soon start contacting the “second priority criteria” Hassan Centenary Terraces applicants who are on the housing waiting list.
This will happen in two phases, a statement from the Government yesterday said. The first people to be called are those on the waiting list, followed by single applicants who have applied for houses jointly.
Hassan Centenary Terraces applicants living in Government rented accommodation have all been contacted to select their new homes, the Government said.
Those who are in arrears of rent were contacted and will be offered an appointment once they settle their arrears in full.
No flats have been allocated yet but applicants can now select their new homes via an appointment system.
Housing Minister Samantha Sacramento said the past few weeks have been very busy and there has been “a great buzz” while people wait for their calls.
She added: “I am very pleased with the structured and organised way in which the appointments for allocation are being handled.”
“GRP and the Housing Department are working very closely together to verify and filter all applications to ensure the correct priority is being applied.”
“I can categorically confirm and guarantee that the only applicants who have been contacted by GRP so far are the applicants in the first allocation criteria, i.e. only those who currently live in a government flat which will become vacant upon purchase so that it can be returned to the Government stock.”
“I am pleased that we can now move on to the next applicants later in the week.”
