At the end of the bid period we put all bids for each property in points order, for Band A applicants, then in points order for Band B applicants etc. We call this our ‘shortlist’ for the property. If two people in the same band have the same number of points, the person who has been registered the longest is put first.

The Lettings Teams carry out all the necessary eligibility checks to make sure that people are entitled to bid for that size of property, are eligible to be on the Housing Register and do not have rent arrears.

We will invite the top bidders from each shortlist to view the property, usually during the week following the close of bids.

If you bid you should be ready to view it at short notice.

If you are an existing tenant we will visit you to advise you on how to leave your home before you are offered a new property.

If the person who was top of the shortlist refuses the property, we then offer it to the next person on the list, and so on. We will advise you of your right to appeal against any decisions and how to exercise that right. If you do appeal against any decisions, we will notify you of the outcome within 28 days.

In most cases we will not have completed all the repair work in the property to bring it up to the Lettable Standard by the time of the viewing.

The Lettable Standard describes the repair standard which empty homes must reach before we let them.
