Chelmsford City Council

Bidding on properties

We have continued to run our choice-based lettings scheme throughout this time. If you are on the Housing Register, you can still express your interest in properties advertised each week but there may still be a delay to move dates due to coronavirus. You can read more on our coronavirus updates page.

You can start bidding on properties when you have joined the Housing Register, and we have:

  • told you that you are eligible and qualify to join the Housing Register
  • told you your band
  • told you the type of property you can bid on
  • given you your HomeOption Identification Number (HOIN)

If we are reassessing your housing need because you have reported a change in circumstance, you will not be able to log in to HomeOption.
