Once you are accepted onto the housing register, you can start the search for a new home via the Locata bidding system.
Sign into the Locata website and start looking at the properties you are eligible for (if you are logging in for the first time you need to create a password and activate it from your email account).
You put your name down for properties you would like to live in. This is known as ‘bidding’. It does not involve money - you just put your name down to show your interest.
Adverts are added to the Locata website weekly and each one is available for 7 days. You can ‘bid’ for up to a maximum of three properties that you are eligible for each week.
Before you bid, make sure the property is suitable for you and that you are happy to move to the area that it is located in.
Then, all you need to do it click the 'Place Bid' button.
