Available properties now

If you are looking for housing, we have a number of unfurnished flats and maisonettes available to rent.

Housing associations

We work in partnership with a number of housing associations, also known as Registered Providers, to help meet housing needs and to build sustainable communities across the borough.

Housing associations are independent and not for profit organisations that provide a range of affordable housing services which can include:

• general needs housing for rent

• housing for sale - including shared ownership

• sheltered housing - offering services to those who need some extra help to live independently

• supported housing - for people in need of care e.g. older people

• specialist hostels

They provide the majority of new affordable housing in the borough and are regulated by the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA).

Renting from housing associations

There are two ways you can apply for housing association rented accommodation. Either contact the housing association directly (some housing associations take direct applications) or apply to the council for housing.

The majority of vacant housing association properties are advertised on and a proportion of housing association vacancies are let to people nominated by the council.

Priority for housing association properties is generally given to people in the most housing need.

Dudley Housing Partnership

The partnership is made up of Dudley Council and the 13 housing associations currently operating in the borough.
