How to bid for social housing

From the 25 November 2021 you can bid on a property using our new system. We advertise our properties on our housing jigsaw register.

If you have not re-registered or completed your application, then you will need to before you can bid for housing.

Once you have completed your new application and uploaded your documents, we will process your application. 

Your application will be ready for us to process if you have:

  • completed your new online housing application
  • uploaded your documents

Once we process your application you will receive:

  • a notification in your housing register account and;
  • a letter of confirmation

You will be able to log into your account and express an interest/bid on available properties. You can find properties that meet your bedroom needs.

We advertise properties between Thursday and Sunday weekly. The adverts run from 12am on Thursday, and close every Sunday at 11.59pm.
