Christmas Bid Cycle
Properties will be advertised over the Christmas period, the bid cycle will run from 12:01 am Thursday 22nd December until 11:59 pm Monday 2nd January.
Immediately Available Homes
We have homes that are available now. These are advertised as Low Cost homes and have already been advertised through Homefinder in accordance with the Common Allocation Policy. They will be advertised outside of the usual lettings cycles so applicants can apply any time. Applicants will be considered in the order that they bid and the property may be allocated to the first suitable applicant. Landlords will undertake their usual checks to ensure that applicants are eligible.
Northumberland Homefinder is Northumberland County Council's housing allocation service, delivered in partnership with Homes for Northumberland, Bernicia, Isos Housing and Four Housing. If you want to apply for a property that is owned by any of these landlords you need to apply to join Northumberland Homefinder.
If you need help to complete the application form, you can contact us. Our details are in the How to Contact Us section of the website.
We will use the information you provide in your application to assess your housing need. We will write to you to confirm that we have accepted your application and tell you which priority band we have assigned you. We will also provide you with a Housing Register number and a PIN which you will need to access the service.
Once you are registered, to find out about the properties that we have available click on Property Search at the top of the page. Available properties will be advertised from 00:01 on a Thursday until 23:59 the following Monday. If you see a property you would like to be considered for you will need to "bid".
