Guidance for applying for a home in Wolverhampton:

  1. Once your application has been submitted to Wolverhampton City Council, your application will be assessed according to your housing need.
  2. If eligible, you will be contacted and provided with your registration number, the priority band you have been assessed with and what size of property you are eligible for.
  3. Every week, the association's empty properties will be advertised on Homes in the City.
  4. During the week you can look at the adverts and bid on the properties you wish to be considered for. You can bid for up to three properties in a week. Properties are advertised from 6pm on Tuesday and bidding closes at 9am the following Monday.
  5. Once the bidding period closes, bidders will be shortlisted in accordance with our policies. 
  6. Properties will be offered to the customer with the highest priority in which they have been assessed. Please note, properties are advertised with preference being given to a particular band that might not always be emergency, which ensures customers are given a fair opportunity to be reached for an offer of a home.
  7. Homes in the City will provide feedback on all properties advertised outlining the bands of the successful applicant and band date.

We also have a number of properties outside of the Wolverhampton area. If customers wish to apply for accommodation in the Stafford, Cannock, Shropshire and South Staffordshire areas you will need to register with the relevant local authority. If you are over 55 years old or have a disability, you may wish to consider our supported housing which includes our bungalow schemes.
