We are currently receiving substantially higher volumes of housing applications than normal. We assess applicants' housing need for admission to the Housing Register as quickly as practicable. At present, housing needs assessments are taking about 4 weeks. Please refrain from chasing - the council is receiving much greater volumes of calls and emails than prior to the pandemic.
If you have forgotten your Homebid reference number, or would like help to place a bid please call on 01256 844844.
Advice and information on the housing register, including answers to frequently asked questions, can be found on our website.
If you wish to update your details, you can do so by logging in to your account and selecting the My Social Housing tab.
Please note that properties are advertised on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. There are no adverts on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
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 or rent level before making a bid, please contact the Housing Association advertising the property (click here for a list of Housing Associations).
