Before you are offered a property you may be asked to provide further documents to support your application. The Housing Association will tell you what documents you need to provide and when to provide them.
When your application is active you will be able to 'bid' on properties that are advertised on the HomefinderRCT website. Properties are advertised each week between Thursday and Tuesday and you can place your bid at any time during the bidding cycle.
There are no properties advertised on HomefinderRCT on Wednesdays.
If your bid is successful the Housing Association will contact you to offer you the property and to make arrangements with you to view it. You will not be contacted if your bid is unsuccessful, you can check the status of your bid via your account.
