Once registered you can make bids for properties you are eligible for. The properties are all available to view on the Homes First Lettings website, along with further details about how to bid, and the banding of the available properties.
How we record bids and allocate properties
All the bids for the properties are recorded in priority order by band, local connection and time on the register. In the case of rural properties in the Lewes district, we will allocate to the person who is highest on the shortlist, with a local connection to the village. Even if you are at the top of the list you may not be offered the property if you have outstanding rent arrears or a history of anti-social behaviour.
Successful bids and property viewings
If you are successful in your bid for a property we will contact you to arrange a viewing. If you do not attend the viewing, or make alternative arrangements, we will treat this as a refusal. When you have viewed the property you will need to let us know by noon the next day if you are going to accept it. If we do not hear from you within this timescale we will treat this as a refusal and the property will be offered to the next applicant.
