You need to be registered on our housing list (Homesearch) to bid for properties.
Find out more information on register on the housing list.
You can bid for properties by accessing your 'My Housing Online' account below -
by e-mail HousingAccess.Enquiries@hullcc.gov.uk
- Include your application reference number, your name, date of birth and the details of the properties (reference numbers and addresses) you want to bid for
- by telephoning 01482 300 300
Number of bids
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 3 bids
- C, D or E you can make up to 2 bids
If you bid for a property that is not owned by us, you are agreeing for us to share your details with the landlord of that property (the property advert will state who the landlord is).
Adverts are published weekly on a Thursday morning and bidding closes the following Monday at 5pm. This may change across public holidays or when we need to carry out essential system maintenance.
We expect a high volume of people using the website on Thursdays when bidding opens. If you have any problems placing bids on Thursdays, be aware that it is not a first come, first served process and you have until bidding closes to place your bids.
You need to scroll to the bottom of the page and select browse all available properties.
Choosing your bids and refusing offers
It is very important that you choose your bids carefully and only bid for properties that you are eligible for and would accept if offered.
If you refuse two offers of accommodation within a 6-month period, your housing application will be frozen for 6-months. You will not be able to bid whilst your application is frozen.
Placing a bid
When bidding is open there are 3 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 your bids to your basket you need to confirm them, or they are not placed.
Make sure you allow enough time to place your bids before the 5pm deadline. Any bids received after the deadline will not be considered.
