Advertised Properties

Properties are advertised each week between Thursday and Tuesday. They are advertised on the Property Search page on this website.

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 house type 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 the applicant must meet, such as age requirements and which Groups are eligible to register an interest in the property. If you are not in the Group stated you will not be able to register an interest.
