We are making improvements to Homes In The City. As of 5pm on 27th August 2019, current and new housing applicants will need an email address to apply and bid for homes. This change is one in a series of improvements we're making to enhance the customer experience and provide the best possible service to you. 

As a responsible social housing provider and managing agent for the City of Wolverhampton Council's housing stock, we are committed to providing decent homes and delivering great housing services to the people of Wolverhampton.

Are you ready to move? + Our properties represent a long-term home for many of our customers and we work hard to get them repaired and let as quickly as possible. Applicants have a role to play in this by making sure that they are ready to take on a new home before bidding for one.
