We provide a series of videos so you can decide if you are ready to move into a property.

Moving and setting up a home, especially for the first time, can be expensive and challenging so at Homes in the City we have a series of pre-tenancy videos to help get you ready. 

These videos cover what Wolverhampton Homes expects from potential tenants, and what you can expect from them. How to manage your money, your tenancy, and your responsibilities. You need to watch the videos if: 

  • You're not a current council or housing association tenant 
  • You have a tenancy with a private landlord 
  • You've had rent arrears or other problems in a past tenancy 

Once you confirm you have watched and understood the videos, we can make your application live and you can start bidding.
