If you have found a property that is the right size for your household and that you would like to be considered for, you need to tell us. This is called placing a bid. A bid is not a financial bid but an expression of interest in a home.
You can place a bid in the following ways:
You can use any computer, for example your own or a computer at your local Library. You will need to be a member of your library to do this but it is free to join, you just need to fill out a Library Membership application form and provide proof of ID with your address. You can then take advantage of all of the other services your Libraries offer!
You can use a computer at the Bexley Civic Offices Contact Centre between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm. Please note that computers at the Contact Centre are limited so you may wish to visit your local library instead where more computers may be available. If you are a member of the Library you can book a time slot for a computer at the Library in advance.
You can find the User Guide on how to place bids using the internet here.
Once you have found a home or homes you would like to bid on, make sure you have the property reference number shown in the advert together with your registration number and PIN. Then call the above number and follow the voice instructions to place your bids.
You can find the User Guide on how to place bids using the Interactive Telephone Service here.
You can also text a bid. To do this you will need your registration number, your password and the property reference of the home or homes you want to bid on. You can find the User Guide on how to place a bid by text message here.
Once bidding closes, a shortlist of the highest priority bidders will be prepared and passed to the relevant Landlord who will contact those on the shortlist to arrange a viewing.
If you are not contacted by the Landlord you have not been successful in bidding so try again for another home.
If you need additional help to search or to place a bid using any of the methods above contact the Bexley Allocations Service by email at firstname.lastname@example.org by telephone on 020 3045 3100 or use the Contact Form option above.
