Register for a housing association home
Looking for an affordable local home?
We work with Bromford Living and other housing agencies to help local people to find affordably priced homes to rent.
From July 2013, the UChoose online housing register, a website that lists local properties for rent, will be replaced by Homes Direct.
Homes Direct will allow applicants greater choice and information about housing options and more control to make changes to the application when their circumstances change.
It will also offer applicants an immediate banding decision without the need to provide verification documents. They will instead be asked to verify their circumstances at the point of being short-listed for a property.
We’ve written to all of our applicants registered on UChoose to tell them about the change and to ask them if they would like their application details to be transferred to Homes Direct. We’ll transfer everyone that has asked to remain on the housing register over to Homes Direct in July.
In the meantime, Lichfield District Council and Bromford Living are unable to accept any new applications or to make any changes to the banding of existing applications on UChoose from now until July 2013.
Properties will be advertised on UChoose until 19 June 2013. We will begin advertising properties on Homes Direct in July, and applicants will be able to search for these at www.homesdirect.org.uk
If you have any questions about the change from UChoose to Homes Direct, please contact Bromford Living on 0330 1234 034.
If you are worried about your housing options and need help and advice, please visit the council’s housing options website or contact our housing options team on 01543 308703 or 308709.
