You may move to a municipality as soon as you have a residence permit. The government decides which municipality you will move to. The municipality provides housing and pays attention to your personal circumstances.
This is how you can get a house
When you receive a residence permit, the Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (COA) matches you with a municipality. The COA tries to match you with a municipality near where you can work. After you are matched with a municipality, the municipality will look for suitable housing. Usually this is social housing from a housing corporation. These are homes that are affordable for people with lower incomes.
