Step 3 - Bid

   

Properties available to rent are advertised from Friday to midnight on the following Tuesday every week.

To express your interest in a property you can either bid:

  • online through this website or
  • by calling our 24 hour automated bidding line - 0300 0112130 (same cost as a local call)

You may bid for any property that you are eligible for in each advertising period. Please be aware the size of accommodation you can bid on allows a bedroom standard which differs to the number of bedrooms Housing Benefit will pay for.  Housing Benefit will restrict the size of accommodation based on the number of people in your household. The rules allow one bedroom for:

  • every adult couple (married or unmarried)
  • any other adult aged 16 or over
  • any two children of the same sex aged under 16
  • any two children aged under 10
  • any other child (other than a foster child or child whose main home is elsewhere)
  • a carer (or team of carers) who do not live with you but provide you or your partner with overnight care.

You can also easily withdraw a bid if you change your mind.

If you or someone you know would like help with bidding, please contact the Housing Options Team.
