Due to continuing problems with the system that Homes4Wiltshire uses to process housing applications there may be a delay of up to 2 weeks in assessing housing applications once we have received all the documents we require.
We do apologise for this delay which has been caused by issues beyond our control. However we are endeavouring to assess housing applications as quickly as we can so that applicants may start bidding for properties.
