Bournville Village Trust does not operate blanket bans, and no applicant will be automatically, excluded. Each application will be assessed on its merits.

If we decide not to offer a home to a customer, we will explain our reasons clearly and advise the customer what they need to do to enable them to be reconsidered in the future.

The list below is not exhaustive, but provides some examples of situations where we may make the decision not to offer a home:

  • affordability
  • lack of evidence to support application
  • history of snti-social behaviour or unacceptable behaviour
  • we will generally only consider existing homeowners, where the property that they own is going through a sale and the sale will not release more than £50k in capital. A higher capital threshold may be accepted in circumstances where an applicant for an extra care scheme has medium or high support needs, but insufficient funds to independently resolve their housing, care and support needs
  • we will only offer a home to vulnerable customers where adequate support arrangements are in place.
  • minors (Under 18 years).

Applicants can apply for a Bournville Village Trust home via the Bournville Village Trust website.
