Finding a home

Once you have been accepted onto Tamworth’s housing register, you will be able to start bidding for available properties. More information about how this works will have been provided to you as part of your successful application onto the housing register.

Please remember there will be a lot of people bidding for the same properties and these will be allocated according to the housing need priority set out on our council housing webpage.

We operate a choice-based letting system to give you as much say as possible about where you want to live and when you want to move. Due to the shortage of council homes in Tamworth, we will also help you explore other affordable housing options.

If you haven’t yet applied to join the register, please visit our pages on council housing and applying for council housing for more information first.

All properties, including sheltered housing, are advertised for bidding on the dedicated Finding a Home website, which also includes more information about how to place bids.

Housing associations

Social housing is also available via a number of housing associations in Tamworth. We work in partnership with several of these providers, and their properties are often available to bid on via the Finding a Home site.

As these homes have a different landlord, the lettings criteria may be different, so please make sure you read the relevant information on the property before submitting your bid. However, housing association providers must consider the council’s housing allocations policy when making decisions.

You can also bid with housing associations directly. Providers in Tamworth include:
