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).

If you are successful in bidding on a property, please be aware that many Housing Associations will ask for rent in advance.

The table below shows information regarding recently accepted offers as a result of bidding through Basingstoke Homebid.  The number of bids placed on a property, can give an indication of how popular that particular size and type of property/area is.  There is also a column showing the number of months the successful applicant spent on the Housing Register.

To use the scheme you will have to have applied and been accepted onto the Housing Register (if you are already on the Housing Register you do not need to register again. If you are not sure please contact us).You must then tell us which properties you are interested in. This process is known as bidding.

Our website is packed with useful information to help you find you a suitable home. You can use this website to:

If you are an existing social housing tenant you can do a mutual exchange through the Homeswapper service.

At the moment Basingstoke and Deane Homebid is set up for social housing only. If you are looking for shared ownership please look at the Help to Buy South website. If you are interested in private rented properties you should contact a local lettings agent.
