Choosing

The adverts tell you the landlord, location, size, rent and other features of the property to help you decide which properties are right for you.  Where available a photograph of the property or a similar property type is provided and you can access information about the local area and facilities.

The advert also tells you if there are any special requirements that you must meet, such as age, number of children allowed or local connection.  

A range of symbols are used to tell you about the property.

The advert may tell you, you are eligible because you meet the property size, however you must meet all of the advert details to be considered for the property. 

How do you decide who is offered a property?

Once the closing date for bids has passed a shortlist of interested applicants is drawn up. The shortlist is in order of the highest bands and earliest priority date. The applicant at the top of the list and who meets all of the advert and preference criteria and who is therefore at the top of the shortlist will normally be offered the property.

It remains the decision of the Registered Provider (Landlord), whether to accept you for a property in accordance with its own Lettings Policy. 

Expressing your Interest in a Property

To bid for a property you must tell us that you wish to be considered for it. This is called bidding. You can bid for a maximum of three properties each week.

How to bid

You can bid:

  • On this website
  • By telephoning one of the participating Councils
  • In person at one of the participating Councils offices: housing staff will be happy to help.

It does not matter when you bid as long as you bid between these times. Click here to view the property advert symbols and what they mean.
