How bidding for a home works
Vacant properties become available in a weekly cycle. You can bid for properties from the start of each cycle, and at the end of each cycle the vacant property is offered to the bidder with the highest Home Choice priority. The weekly cycle starts at one minute past midnight every Thursday and ends at one minute to midnight every Monday.
Please note that some properties may be restricted to people with specific needs. Restrictions of this kind are clearly stated in the information on the property.
How are bids decided?
Home Choice priority is calculated in the following order:
- Your Home Choice banding, then
- Your Home Choice points score, then
- The date you first made your Home Choice bid.
Please note that properties will not be offered to any applicants who have any arrears with us.
