From 1st June 2020 we will be able to recommence carrying out routine repairs in addition to the ‘essential repairs only’ policy we were required to adopt during the enforced coronavirus COVID-19 lockdown period. It is important that we carry out these repairs safely, taking into account appropriate social distancing measures to ensure continued safety for residents, operatives and contractors.

This work will include recommencing works to some empty homes to enable them to be re-let, although we may not be working in every empty home or new empty homes immediately they become empty for some weeks yet. Where we are allowing some re-let of properties we will do so safely, and we will be prioritising voids in accordance with housing needs. We will keep customers informed of progress when we have some news. Our officers continue to work during this period, although in different ways, but our offices will remain closed to the public until further notice.

If you are looking for housing in the Dudley borough one option is rented accommodation. Dudley at Home lists properties that are available from Dudley Council and other registered social landlords (housing associations) in the Dudley borough.

You can use this website to:

Anyone can view currently available properties using the property search.

However, if you want to apply for a property (known as bidding) you need to join the Dudley Housing Register. Click here for more information.

If you would like further help to use Dudley at Home please click here or contact one of our Area Housing Offices or Dudley Council Plus.

Bids and offers of accommodation

Please ensure that you only place bids on properties you are genuinely interested in.

If you bid for a property and are contacted about an offer which you then refuse this will be counted as a refusal. Your application will be suspended and you will be unable to bid for properties in the following two cycles.

For more information about the bidding process click here.

Bidding by DigiTV is also available. Dudley Council's DigiTV site can be accessed by residents with any digital interactive television package such as Sky and Virgin Media. The 'Dudley at Home' link is on the homepage of the site. 

Customers who own or are considering purchasing a mobility scooter are advised to read storage and safety information on the DMBC website before placing bids. Click here and click on the Mobility Scooters link for further information.

Should you decide to accept a property you will be required to pay rent in advance at the sign up appointment. This will be one week, two weeks or one month depending how your benefit or salary is paid. Please note our preferred method of rent payment is direct debit so you will need to bring details of your bank account number and bank sort code with you to the appointment. The Council operates a Housing Benefit scheme to assist tenants on low incomes. If you would like further information please call 0300 555 8100
