All bids received will be put in priority order to produce a list of eligible applicants for each property advertised. The landlord of the property will carry out any outstanding eligibility checks, (e.g. rent checks, household circumstance checks).
If your name is at the top of the priority list you will normally be invited to view the property. There may be reasons why we are unable to do this, for example, if you have rent arrears or the Council is taking legal action against you for breaching a tenancy condition or you do not meet the eligibility criteria that was specified in the advert.
If we are unable to offer the property to the applicant at the top of the list we will move to the next applicant and so on.
If you decide to refuse the property it will be offered to the next person on the priority list. You will not normally be penalised for refusing a property and will continue to be able to bid for properties advertised.
If you are offered a property you will not be shortlisted for other properties until you have decided to either accept or refuse the offer.
