How it works  

1. Registration

To apply for social housing in Coventry you need to complete an online application form by clicking on the Register button.

Please note this involves a pre-assessment which will provide you with options relevant to your circumstances. You will need to complete a full housing application after the pre-assessment if you wish to continue. This will follow on after your action plan.

 2. Assessment

When we have received your electronic form, we will make an assessment of your circumstances and award the appropriate banding.  In certain circumstances we may ask you to provide additional evidence

For a full breakdown of the Bands please view the homefinder policy ( hyperink)

 3. Bidding

Once your application is live you will be able to start bidding on properties. You may have a maximum of three bids at any one time.

New properties are advertised every day and you can place bids for properties on this website by logging into your application, click on the Sign in tab at the top of the page.

You can also set up property alerts to receive an email when a property in your required area is advertised, to remind you to log into the site and bid.

4. Offer

Properties will normally be offered to the household with the highest banding.

If there are households with the same banding, priority will be given to the applicant that has been in that banding the longest (this is called the effective date)

Before making an offer, the housing association advertising the property may make further checks or ask you to provide additional evidence.
