Choice Based Lettings schemes

CBL Providers we work with

In some areas we take part in a local choice based lettings (CBL) scheme along with the local authority and other landlords. Most of our available homes are then let through these schemes.

Choice based lettings enables you to complete one application and be considered by a number of landlords with homes in the areas you choose. Available homes are advertised and you can then bid for any you are interested in and that are suitable for you. All bids are judged on their priority or banding and the highest placed applicant is usually offered the home first.

Local Authority Nominations

In some areas we ask the local authority to choose new tenants for available homes from their own housing waiting list. We call these Nominations.

The proportion of available homes we ask the local authority to provide nominations for varies but is usually around half our housing stock.

Being eligible for social housing doesn’t mean that you will automatically be offered a home. It means that you are entitled to be considered for a home.

As housing demand is generally high, there is often long waiting lists and some people may never be offered a home.

For more information about eligibility and how to apply, please choose the relevant link from the list on the right.

Yorkshire Housing waiting list

In some local authority areas we still retain our own Yorkshire Housing Waiting List.

Occasionally the waiting list covers all homes in that area but sometimes it only covers a small number of homes because the majority of homes are let through other routes such as choice based letting or local authority nominations.

How to apply to go on the Yorkshire Housing Waiting List

Please call 0345 366 4404 and we will take your details over the phone.

Your application is assessed against a points scheme and if you are eligible your details will be added to the Waiting List. If you become the highest priority applicant for a vacant home we will then contact you.

We currently only list properties we have available in Bradford on this website.
