When can I bid?

You can bid on available properties from 12:01 on a Wednesday until 23:59 on the following Tuesday.

You must apply and be accepted onto the housing register first before you can start bidding


How high is my bid in the bidding cycle?

You can bid at any time throughout the choice based lettings cycle. At the end of the cycle, all bids are assessed and placed in order of priority. The highest placed bids will be most in need of housing.

There is no advantage to bidding early in the cycle. Bids are treated equally regardless of the point in the cycle they are made.

Can I have a specific property on the bidding cycle?

You cannot make an offer at the bidding stage. 

Your bid will be assessed and placed in order of priority. 

We will offer you the property if your bid is successful.

Make an appeal

If you feel the decision made on your housing application is not correct, you can appeal.

To do this, you will need to make an appeal to us within 21 days of the decision made showing how you meet Northampton Borough Council's Allocations Policy.
