New website offers housing advice

A new website providing housing advice to people in Birmingham has been launched by the City Council’s Housing Options service.

Birmingham Housing Options is a one-stop shop offering advice and information to social housing tenants, private tenants and homeowners.

The website focuses on four key areas:

  1. Staying At Home – looking at everything from reporting repairs and adapting your home for accessibility to dealing with rent or mortgage arrears and understanding your housing rights.
  2. Finding a home – how to apply for council and housing association properties, private rented accommodation and housing for older people.
  3. Advice and assistance – looking at support services for homelessness and domestic abuse.
  4. A supply and demand section that provides information regarding the number of council properties available for letting and the demand for these.

This website answers the most frequently asked questions about housing options in Birmingham and I’m sure it will prove invaluable to people across the city.  There’s a wealth of information on the availability of homes in Birmingham, the support services that people may need at different stages of their lives and the help that is available in times of crisis.
