How do you apply for a home?
Although we build the homes we do not select who is eligible to live in them. To apply for a home, you need to register with your local authority who will operate a choice based lettings system, which allows home seekers to bid for vacant properties.
Once you have registered, you will receive a bidding reference number which you will need to use every time you want to bid for a property. When you have placed your bid, the local authority concerned will allocate the property depending on the priority level of the bidder.
