Following a review of the City of Wolverhampton Council's Housing Allocations Policy a number of changes will take place which will affect all properties advertised on or after Tuesday 2 June 2020. The changes are as follows: Applicants who have refused two offers of suitable accommodation in a 12-month period will be deferred (your application will be temporarily closed) from the housing register for a period of six months. We will write to tell you if you are being deferred and you can ask us to review our decision. If you are owed a homeless duty we will make one offer of suitable accommodation. If you refuse the offer, it will end the statutory homelessness duty. That means that your statutory homeless priority will be removed.
