Sometimes we have properties that are available on a first come, first served basis.
All properties are first advertised in the HomeSearch advert for bidding, but if we are not able to let a property to any of the people that bid for it, we may then advertise it as first come, first served.
A list of properties available on a first come, first served basis can be found below. If there are no properties displayed, then that means we do not have any properties to advertise at this time.
Apply for a first come, first served property
If you see a first come, first served property you are interested in you should follow the instructions in the property advert. Usually it gives you a telephone number to contact to express your interest. You need to be on the housing list before we can consider your expression of interest.
Eligibility criteria for a first come, first served property
You may still have to meet certain criteria to be considered for a first come, first served property. This is stated clearly in the property advert. If you do not meet the criteria stated we are not able to offer you the property.
Do I have to be registered on the housing list to be considered for a first come, first served property?
Yes, you need to have a live housing application before we can progress your expression of interest in the property. If you contact us to express an interest in a first come, first served property and you are not registered on the housing list you will be advised to complete an application form and supporting evidence such as proof of identity. You will be told how to do this when you express your interest in the property.
