How long will it take to find a home
High demand for social housing
There's incredibly high demand for housing in Derby and there are not enough properties for everyone on the housing register. There are always more people wanting to be housed than homes will ever be available.
It can be difficult for us to say when you will be offered a home, most people may never receive an offer.
We understand how important it is to be near friends, family, and support services. Limiting the areas, you want to live, or landlords you want housing with, will affect our ability to help you even if you have a high priority for housing.
There is a shortage of fully adapted properties in Derby, especially for families. If you need an adapted property will also be able to place bids on properties that might not have all the adaptations you need. If you are shortlisted, we’ll assess whether the adaptations can be made to meet your needs.
If you've been placed in the 'Open to all' band, it means you don’t have a need for social housing and it is highly unlikely that you'll be offered a property. There are currently around 2,000 people in the open to all band and in the last three months, 0 properties have been advertised in this band.
