Bid for a home

Welcome to Hull City Council’s new website. We hope you like our new design and find it easy to use. You can tell us what you think, or make suggestions for improvements, using this form.

You need to be registered on our housing list (Homesearch) to bid for properties.

More information on registering for Homesearch.

The number of bids you can make in each advert depends on which priority band you are in. If you are in -

  •  band A or B you can make up to six bids
  •  band C, D or E you can make up to three bids

If you bid for a property that is not owned by us you are agreeing for us to share your details with that landlord.


It is important you do not bid for properties you are not eligible for as we will not consider you for them. 

More information about which property types you are eligible for

To bid for a sheltered property you must be registered on our sheltered housing list. To be eligible you must - 

  • be 55 or over 
  • need the support that sheltered acomodation offers

Weekly adverts

Adverts are published weekly on a Thursday morning and bidding closes the following Monday at 5pm. This may change across public holidays or to carry out essential system maintenance.

Bidding information

When bidding is open there are three search icons at the bottom of the page. To bid for a property you must add it to your basket. Once you have added all of your bids to your basket you need to confirm them or they will not be placed. 

Make sure you allow enough time to place your bids before the 5pm deadline. Any bids received after the deadline are not considered.
