Help with Bidding

The council can bid on your behalf with your permission:

This service will only be available to you if you are vulnerable and are unable to bid for yourself and you do not have someone who can help. You will need to give us your permission in writing and we will only place bids for properties which you have said you want to be considered for in the areas you have said you want to live.

It is likely that we will be placing bids for a number of applicants and therefore we will not be able to contact each individual applicant when we make a bid on their behalf.

The bids placed will be recorded in the applicant’s bidding history and we can review the bids that were placed with an applicant when required.

Please contact the Housing Options Team to have a more detailed discussion and request an Auto Bidding Declaration Form.
