Bidding

Advertising properties

Properties are advertised each week. They are advertised in the following ways:

  •  On the Property search panel on this website.
  •  In a newsletter available from in offices of the Home-Link partners.

The adverts tell you the landlord, location, size, rent and other features of the property to help you decide which properties are right for you.

Where available a photograph of the property, or a similar property, is provided and you can access information about the local area and facilities.

The advert also tells you if there are any special requirements that you must meet, such as age requirements and a connection to a village. If you do not meet the requirements stated you may still be able to apply for the property providing it is suitable for your family size.
