It is essential that you submit the required documents to support your application for housing. If Homes4Wiltshire do not receive all the necessary documents, we will not be able to assess you housing application. Please click here for a full list of all documents required. NB Please note that parish connections are important for bidding, so providing evidence of parish connections is vital for success.
If you have the facility to scan your documents, please email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Whilst electronic copies are acceptable, Homes4Wiltshire or a housing provider may ask for originals later on as part of a verification and fraud prevention process.
Once you have completed your housing application form, we will need to verify your details and assess your housing need. We aim to do this within 28 working days of receipt of all the documents required. It may take longer if your case is complex and we have to ask you further questions. When we place you on the Housing Register (or if we do not) we formally write to tell you:
Your housing application number
The band that your application has been placed in
Your effective date (the date you were placed in the band)
The number of bedrooms you are entitled to
You must tell us if there are any changes in your circumstances so that we can reassess your application and, if necessary, make changes to your band and bedroom entitlement. You log on to your account and make the changes for our staff to approve. If you fail to tell us about a change in circumstances, then your application may be closed and you will miss out on properties.
