Choice Based Letting and Coronavirus:  To prevent the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19), social distancing measures have been put in place and the Coronavirus Act giving advisory guidance to landlords and tenants has now been passed. We need to support the stay at home advice whilst continuing to help those in the most urgent housing need as the Government has directed us to do.

We are pausing our choice based letting service until Sunday 31st May. After this date it will be reviewed following Government guidance. No further properties will be advertised in the meantime. We are putting all of our efforts into assiting those in urgent housing.

What is choice-based letting?

  • Make your own decision about where and when you want to move.
  • See all our available empty properties - it's an open and fair system
  • We work with others organisations to prevent homelessness
  • We use trained mediators to return people home
  • We work with private landlords/housing associations to provide more available housing
  • Everyone can view the advertised properties but to place a bid applicants will need to create an account and log in. There are simple screen instructions to follow. Having an account will enable people to be able to manage their own bids; view bids made, make changes to these if they need to, delete bids if they change their mind and add new ones.
