How long will I be waiting for a whg home?
Demand for our homes is high, so it is unlikely you will move into a new home straightaway. If you have a critical need, you may move quicker than others. Waiting times also depend on which band you are in and what type of home you are looking for. For more information, read ‘What is a band?’
