20/20 rarely has empty homes, but when we do, we allocate them to people in housing need who wish to live in co-operative housing. Where applicants have similar needs for housing, we will give preference to those who actively wish to participate in the running of the co-op.
We use a joint waiting list used by other housing co-ops in Birmingham that is administered by BCHS. This joint waiting list is usually only open for a two-week period (usually in February). Contact BCHS for further information.
Our members may request a transfer to a different property in the co-op or in other co-ops, but to be included on the transfer list, members must be eligible and meet the criteria for a transfer which includes having a clear rent account and not being in rent arrears at the point of application for transfer and from then until the transfer.
