Properties are advertised each week. They are advertised in the following ways:
The adverts tell you the landlord, location, size, rent and 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 house type is provided and you can access information about the local area and facilities.
The advert also tells you if there are any special requirements that the applicant must meet, such as age, local connection and which type of applicant may apply. A range of symbols are used to tell you about the property.
From time to time a landlord may put a restriction on who can bid for a property. For example, only people who are in employment or people who are of a certain age. There may also be a local lettings plan in place for a particular estate or block of flats which may restrict a person for bidding for one of those properties. We will explain this in the property advert.
To apply for a property you must tell us that you wish to be considered for it. You may only apply for a property that is suitable for your family size or meets your housing needs. You can express your interest in one of the following ways:
Properties available to rent are advertised from midnight on Sunday to midnight on Thursday every week.
You will be able to bid for a maximum of 5 properties during the time they are advertised. Bids will not be accepted after midnight on a Thursday.
