Transparency and Choice
As we have such few vacancies it’s a good idea to increase your chances of finding a home by registering online with Birmingham Choice.

How do choice-based lettings schemes work?
Each choice-based scheme is slightly different, but they all aim to offer choice and transparency.
Homes are advertised by the landlords (Council and Housing Associations) and each advertisement provides information about the property and the criteria you will have to meet to bid for the home. Once registered, you can apply (or bid) for available homes that suit you and your housing needs and you meet the criteria for.
It is important you read the advert thoroughly because if you do not meet the criteria your bid may be blocked.
Each week there is feedback on the website giving details of successful bids.
Once bidding has closed on a property, if you have been successful and it is a BCHA property, we will contact you by phone. We will arrange to meet with you and invite you to view the property before you make your decision.
