The information provided here can be used to help you decide which properties to bid for, by giving you a better idea how popular a particular property or area is and how long you would normally have to wait. You can then decide whether to look for other types of property or areas where you may not have to wait as long. You can also find more statistics about the scheme by clicking here.
The detail for each property advertised will only appear once the property has been let and the system updated by the Landlord. The information will then appear under the week it was advertised.
Social rented properties (council and housing association) are generally offered first to the bidders with a higher band and then the earliest registration date. However, in exceptional circumstances such as where the applicant has provided false information this may not be the case.
Please note. Some properties may only receive one bid. This also happens when a property is used as per our direct lets policy and is allocated directly to applicants outside of the choice based lettings process (please see section 3.13 of the Home Options Policy available on the website). For example, where a customer’s home requires major building work and they need to be moved, the individual will be allocated directly to a suitable property.
