Advertising our properties
We advertise our properties weekly starting on a Thursday. Generally the properties will remain open for bidding until the following Monday at 5pm, however please check each advert carefully as occasionally (e.g. over public holidays) we may extend the deadline for bidding or not advertise at all. If we are not going to advertise at all we will give notice of this in earlier adverts.
You can find council home advertisements in the following places -
If you are unable to access our adverts in any of these ways we can post the information to you.
Properties are advertised as soon as a tenant gives notice to terminate their tenancy so many of the properties are still occupied. Please do not disturb tenants or their neighbours by asking to view their home. If you make a successful bid we will invite you to view the property.

Other housing options
There is high demand for our homes so we are unable to offer everyone on our housing list a property. You may wish to consider other housing options such as private rented accommodation or housing association properties.
