Prioritising Applications

The Coventry Homefinder Policy gives priority to people who have particular housing needs. This is done using a banding system.

When you first register on Coventry Homefinder you will either be placed in Band 3A if you have a local connection or Band 3B if you don't have a local connection.

Some applicants can apply for a priority band if they believe that they have specific housing needs.  The table below sets out the banding scheme and gives examples of those applicants who would be eligible to be placed in each band.

If you think that your household requirements mean that you should be in a priority band you must contact the Coventry Homefinder Team requesting an assessment. 

Please provide the relevent information to:

Coventry Homefinder, 2nd Floor Broadgate House, Coventry, CV1 1FS. 

Details of the information you need to provide can be found on the Further Information page.
