You must already have completed a Housing Register Application and had your 'Active' status approved by the Housing Options Team to be able to bid for available properties.
Bidding on a property expresses your interest, and does not guarantee that an offer will be made.
You can bid in one of the following ways:
Online through our website. Login using your login-reference number and your memorable date (for many people this is their date of birth the first time they login)
By telephoning our 24hr automated bidding line on 0300 111 3570 (normal rate calls)
By texting 07786 201 131
You can bid for a maximum of three properties per week, but please only bid for a property if you would accept an offer of a tenancy.
All adverts have a property reference number that you will need to quote to bid.
Bidding on the internet
From your ‘My Account’ page you will be able to view a list of all the properties you are eligible for under the ‘Properties that you can bid for’ section. Alternatively you can use the Property Search page to search for all available properties.
When searching through properties you will be given the option to ‘Apply now’ if you are eligible for the property. If you click 'Apply now' you will be asked to confirm your bid before it is confirmed.
You will be able to withdraw any bids within the period of the advert cycle on the ‘My Bids’ section, on the left of your 'My Account' page.
