Step 4 - Feedback

We publish information about homes that have been successfully let. We tell you the number of applicants that bid for the property, the band and effective date of the successful applicants. For information about previous lets click Recent Lets.

This information will give you a better idea of how popular a particular property or area is and how long you would normally have to wait. You can then decide whether to look for other types of property or areas where you may not have to wait as long.

Unfortunately it will not be possible to give you individual feedback due to the numbers involved.

Useful information.

When you bid, your queue position is based on your Banding and your effective date. You are not queued in order of when you place your bid, but in order of 'priority'. The highest priority Banding is Band A, then Band B, then Band C, then Band D (please be advised Band D is now only purposed for Sheltered Housing applicants).

You can place your bid/s any time between Thursday and midnight on Sunday when bidding closes. Queue positions are subject to change and it is only once the bidding closes that your queue position settles. This is because applicants in different Bandings place their bids at different times between Thursday and Sunday.

(i.e. If you are in Band C when you place a bid, and then a Band A, Band B, or a Band C applicant with an earlier effective date than yours places their bid after you, then they will come in a higher queue position, and therefore this will lower your position for that particular property).

Queue positions differ for each property depending on who bids for them and preferences may be applied where a property has adaptations, therefore your average queue positions for properties may fluctuate occasionally. We always advise applicants not to rush to place their bids come midnight on a Wednesday as you are not placed in order of when you bid for them. Many applicants are on Autobid whereby our system automatically bids for them. Autobids are placed at the close of bidding (Sunday midnight), which is why your Queue Position may differ dramatically after this time.
