How you apply and bid for housing is changing

We are making improvements to Homes In The City.

As of 27th August 2019, you 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. 

If you haven't already got an email address, now is the time to set one up. It's really simple and there are loads of guides and useful tips online. Visit to learn more.

If you're still having trouble, the following might be able to help:

If you have a current housing application, you will need to register with a valid email address. Please note that this will not change your application. 

The benefits of the improvements we're making include:

  • You will be able to update your contact details at any time
  • You will be able to save your housing application part-way through
  • You will be able to view your progress with the application
  • If any information is missing from your application, you will get a visual reminder, so you can supply it and stand the best possible chance of securing the home you want.
