We are an independent charitable registered provider of affordable general needs housing.

The Association was set up by the council in 1967 as a means to acquire and improve dilapidated housing in inner city areas.

We own and manage 217 homes – mostly traditional Edwardian and Victorian terraced houses some of which have been converted into flats.

We have a limited number of homes available for rent each year, but we take pride in providing high-quality housing to our tenants. Our homes are located primarily in inner-city areas, with a few in the suburbs.

We aim to ensure that our allocation process is fair and efficient, and we encourage you to read on to learn more about how you can apply for one of our properties.

Unfortunately, our Housing Application Form is currently not active for new applicants. We will update the website when this reopens.

Malgorzata's Story

Malgorzata story | Birmingham Civic Housing Association

Malgorzata rented a house for 5 years from a private landlord, the property was in poor condition and not safe for her young child.

When Malgorzata was 7 months pregnant with her second child the landlord put the property up for sale, it was already on the market when she found out that she would have to find somewhere else to live.

Many people came to view the property and Malgorzata had to show them around, fortunately one of them was Helen from BCHA.

Helen decided to purchase the property and Malgorzata and her family stayed on as tenants of BCHA.

Since purchasing the property, BCHA have completed all the repairs, put in a new kitchen and bathroom and replaced the roof.

Malgorzata and her family are very happy with their home.
