Register for a housing association home with Homes Direct
Housing association properties in Lichfield District are let through an online lettings system called Homes Direct.
The register is open to families, couples and single people aged over 18, however there are some exceptions to this rule.
Registering with Homes Direct means you only have to register once to join the waiting list to view/express an interest in all locally available housing association homes (across a wide variety of housing associations).
Homes Direct allows you:
- to search online for available local properties
- to apply online for properties
- to have choice and information about housing options
- an easy way to change an application if your circumstances change
- an immediate banding decision without the need to provide verification documents until you're shortlisted for a property
New properties are advertised on at www.homesdirect.org.uk from Wednesdays until midnight on Sundays. If you are interested in a property you need to express an interest - an expression of interest is not a contract and no money is exchanged. Properties are then allocated the applicant(s) in the highest need band and who have been waiting the longest - our letting scheme policy explains need bands.
