At the end of each advertising cycle, eligible bids will be shortlisted according to the priority of applicants under the banding scheme. Please note your queue position at the time you made your bid could change. For example, this may depend on the number of applicants showing interest in a property or verification checks completed on applicants during and at the end of the advertising cycle.
This will determine which applicants are invited to view the accommodation. The property will then generally be offered to the household in the highest band for the longest length of time. However there will be very limited exceptions to this e.g. when preference is given on mobility criteria and the property is offered to the applicant whose specific needs are best met by the adaptations within the accommodation.
In most instances applicants will be contacted within 10 working days of the end of the bidding cycle if they are invited to view a property. If applicants have not received any contact from the Solihull Home Options after 10 working days from the close of the advertising cycle the bid has been unsuccessful.
Offers of accommodation will be subject to the provision of proof of identity and appropriate evidence to verify housing circumstances.
Failure to produce appropriate evidence may result in an investigation into the eligibility or priority of the application concerned, and the withdraw of the offer of accommodation.
Applicants shortlisted for an offer of accommodation will be contacted to arrange a viewing.
