How Do I Bid By Text?
You can only Bid for Properties where you match what the
advert asks for.
For example, if the property advert states ‘Suitable for a
couple and 2 children only’ - regardless of your banding/priority -
only couples with 2 children can bid for that property.
Every Tuesday morning we publicise the list of available
properties. You have until 12o'clock midnight on the
following Monday to place a bid.
You have a maximum of 3 bids each week. Bids
must be on separate properties that you are eligible for. If you
change your mind, then you can withdraw your
bid and place a bid for a different property.
Don’t be worried about the word ‘Bid’, you won’t be parting with
any money. All this means is that you are actively interested and
wish to be considered for the Property or Properties you are
