Choice based lettings

All of the properties which become available through the housing associations in the Peterborough homes partnership are advertised through the choice based lettings scheme. Choice based lettings is a way of allocating social housing. It gives people seeking accommodation with a social landlord the choice of the type of property and area of the city they would like to live.

We allocate properties on behalf of the partner housing associations in the Peterborough Homes partnership. Each week our partners advise us which properties are available to let and we advertise them. The advert is usually released on Tuesdays and the edition closes on the following Sunday at midnight. If you have a live application on the Peterborough Housing register you can express interest (place a bid) in the properties which you would like to be considered for. You may bid for up to 3 properties per week.
