You can express an interest in as many properties that you are eligible for.
If you are offered two suitable properties in a year but refuse them, we will not let you make a further bid for 12 months.
Details on how to contact the Welfare & Housing Service are available on this website.
There are a few reasons that you might not be able to bid:
If you are still unsure please contact the Welfare & Housing Service.
You must tell the Welfare & Housing Service of any change in your circumstances. If your address/phone number/email address changes log onto your application and update your form online then resubmit it. We need to see proof of change of address before these changes will be authorized. You can also contact the Welfare & Housing Service and advise them of the changes.
If your application is place in Band A there is a limit of 6 months that you can remain in the band, as the band reflects the most urgent need to move. At the end of the 6 months your application will be reviewed and the time extended or your priority reduced.
You will remain in your band for 6 years from your registration date if your circumstances do NOT change – you will then move up a band but will not progress higher than a band B.
Your eligibility will not change until the baby has been born and you have sent in a copy of the birth certificate.
Once you have completed an application you will be given 28 days to send in all documents, once these have been received your application will be made active and you will receive a registration letter in the post to start bidding.
