Important information for customers bidding for properties on Homebid
When you look at the list of properties available on Homebid each week you will now be seeing the terms AFFORDABLE RENT and FIXED TERM TENANCIES on some of the adverts. Before you bid on a property you should be fully aware of what these terms mean. AFFORDABLE RENT means that the rent might be up to 80% of the market rent – it will be more expensive than a social rent. FIXED TERM TENANCIES are usually 5 year tenancies that are reviewed in the last year and either renewed or not – this means that they are not tenancies for life.
If you require more information about the tenancy type rent level before making a bid, please contact the Housing Association advertising the property (click here for a list of Housing Associations).
