Properties are advertised here from Midnight on Thursday until 23.59 on the following Wednesday.
You can bid for properties at any time during the weekly cycle - you do not have to bid on Thursday mornings.
Adverts will tell you the landlord of the property, its location, size, rent and other features to help you decide which properties are suitable for you.
Where available a photograph of the property or 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 requirements or local connection criteria.
You can bid for up to 2 social housing properties each week either by logging into your account or by telephoning our automated bidding line on 0845 2700724.
If you need any help with bidding or would like someone else to bid on your behalf, you should let your local authority know who will explain the options available to you.
You will only be able to bid on properties that you are eligible for.
