At the click of a button tenants and leaseholders can request new repairs online, monitor their progress and keep an eye on their repairs history. Tenants can also view their rent account in real time and leaseholders can view their service charge account.
MySouthwark also allows residents to view information about their area and gives people 24/7 access to their council tax account, benefits, libraries and a wide range of other services. You can now also use it to register to vote.
Cllr Fiona Colley cabinet member for finance, strategy and performance, said: “Southwark Council is always looking for the best ways to provide a better service for a lower cost and putting the best value for money for our taxpayers at the heart of everything we do.
“MySouthwark is a great tool for helping people in Southwark access council information and services that are important to them 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 356 days a year.”
