Renting with us

We offer a range of affordable rented homes across the West Midlands, including houses, flats and bungalows.

How to apply

To rent a home with us you need to apply to your local council.

 

Once you’ve completed your application form you’ll be placed on a waiting list.

 

The council will prioritise your application and nominate you for a home suitable for your needs.

 

You can find links to your council’s housing website below. If you have a question about an application you have made you should contact the council dealing with it.

Who is eligible?

We need to consider a number of things when we make decisions about offering our homes. This includes whether a home will meet your needs and if we think you will be able to afford the rent.

When making our decision we will consider:

  • If we think the tenancy will be successful
  • What the impact may be on our other customers
  • Your previous tenancies
  • The level of support you may need to conduct your tenancy well and be independent
  • How suitable the property is to meeting yours and your family’s needs.

We will not normally offer a home if:

  • You are under the age of 18, unless it is for a specific housing project where support is in place
  • You are subject to immigration control or you are from abroad and not eligible
  • You or members of your family have caused serious anti-social behaviour in the past
  • You have debts with us or another landlord
  • You can’t afford the rent. We assess everyone to see if they can afford to live in the property
  • You already own another property
  • The accommodation won’t meet your needs
  • You have used false information to gain the property or you have committed tenancy fraud in the past
  • Your previous convictions may indicate you pose a risk to your household, neighbours or wider community. Having a previous conviction does not necessarily exclude you from housing, only where we think there is a risk.

It’s really important that you don’t give false information to get a home. This is tenancy fraud and it’s a criminal offence.
