What do I need to make an Expression of Interest?
You need to be registered on Cannock Chase Housing. You need your unique application reference number and the date of birth of the first person on your application form (lead applicant). Just go to the log on menu on the left of this page and enter these details.
When can I Express Interest?
Properties available for letting are displayed from 6am every Wednesday until 23:59 Tuesday each week (unless otherwise stated). It makes no difference when you express interest within the current week - but if you do try to express interest outside of the times listed your expression of interested may be rejected.
If you don't express interest you won't be rehoused and if you haven't placed an expression of interest in twelve months your application could be placed in a reduced band.
