Welcome to Shropshire HomePoint
HomePoint is a Choice-Based Lettings agency that has replaced the old council waiting lists. The purpose of Choice-Based Lettings is to give you more choice in the properties you are interested in and the areas in which you would like to live.
All available properties are advertised weekly on this website and a list of all available property details will be sent to you if you do not have access to the internet and you are in Priority or Gold Band, have a medical condition or vulnerable. The available property 'bidding cycle' commences every Thursday and will finish on the following Tuesday at 5pm each week, except Christmas. You can view the available properties by clicking on the 'search for properties' tab on the left hand side.
To 'bid' (apply) for a property you will need to be logged in. If you are not already logged in you can do so by clicking here. If, for any reason, you have forgotten your username or password, please contact us on 0300 303 8595 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An application form can be downloaded from the Information Pages.
Shropshire HomePoint is unable to accept personal appointments as it is a backoffice service.
HomePoint's Next Bid Cycle:- 239 Starts 6th March 2014 and closes 11th March 2014 at 5pm.
As previously informed, following recent changes in housing law, Shropshire Council has reviewed and produced a new Shropshire Affordable Housing Allocation Policy in consultation with partners, stakeholders and the general public. A copy can be viewed by visiting www.shropshire.gov.uk/housingscheme
The new Allocation Policy will become effective from Wednesday 26th March 2014 and introduces a number of changes and improvements.
There will be a new innovative on-line Housing Solutions Service available on the housing pages of Shropshire Councils website and the HomePoint website. By answering questions about your household and housing situation, a personal action plan will be created showing solutions, advice and assistance available to you. Action plans will also contain links to other useful information, such as jobs and places to go for advice.
Shropshire HomePoint is launching a new easy-to-use website. You will be able to complete an application and update it online. Paper applications will still be available.
There will also be a new Shropshire Mutual Exchange Register for those wishing to swop their home with other tenants of Landlords in the Shropshire HomePoint Scheme.
The property bidding cycle is changing to 7 days, starting on a Wednesdays and finishing on Tuesdays. To speed up the allocation process, only 1 bid of interest will be accepted instead of 3.
Applicants with an email address will be sent a weekly reminder with a link to the latest adverts.
All applicants will be sent a letter from Wednesday 19th March 2014 confirming their new reference number and other important information.
For further information or if you would like to discuss this with an Adviser, please contact the Shropshire HomePoint Team.
