Choosing

Once your application has been accepted onto Hampshire Home Choice, you will be able to bid for properties you are interested in.  

The advert tells you information about the property:

  • Landlord
  • Location
  • Number of bedrooms
  • Rent
  • 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
  • You can also access information about the local area and facilities

The advert 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. 

Once the closing date for bids has passed a shortlist of interested applicants is drawn up. The shortlist is in order of the highest band (Band 1 being the highest and Band 4 being the lowest) 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) or Winchester Landlord Services, whether to accept you for a property in accordance with its own Lettings Policy. 

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.

You can bid:

  • On this website
  • By telephoning one of the participating Councils

Properties available to rent are advertised from 00.01 Wednesday until 23.59 the following Sunday every week. Bids will not be accepted after midnight on a Sunday. It does not matter when you bid as long as you bid between these times. You can view the property advert symbols to find out what they mean.

You may only bid for a property that meets your assessed bedroom need.
