Bid for a council or housing association property
You can make a bid for a council-owned or housing association property. We used to refer to this as your Homebid application.
You cannot bid if you have not:
- made an application for the council housing waiting list
- received an eligibility letter confirming your successful application
After receiving your eligibility letter, you can register to bid through your 'My Housing Tenancy' online account. This will allow you to search the properties that are available to rent and bid for one that meets your housing needs.
We advertise properties on a weekly cycle. A new batch of properties becomes available at 10.00am on Thursdays. You can bid for one of these properties until midnight on the following Tuesday. We use Wednesdays to start allocating the properties, and then a new cycle of bidding begins at midnight.
Search this week's properties
You can search properties online when you enter your account. You can place your bid on a property you like. You can move your bid during the bidding cycle.
Before you bid, you should visit the area of the property and be sure you would like to live there. You should also read our tips for bidding for a council-owned or housing association property.
