Angus Homefinder – Choice-Based Letting

Published on Wednesday 11 November 2020

Our new housing allocation system – Angus Homefinder - is now live.

You can now apply for housing online using our new system via our Find a Home webpage.

Existing applicants do not have to do anything – we’ve transferred over all your details to our new system.

We will advertise available homes and their details on the Angus Homefinder website starting Friday 27 November, so that applicants can bid for the properties they want. More information on how to bid will be given nearer the time.

To apply for a house, you will need -

An accepted Proof of ID:

  • Birth certificate, passport or National Insurance Card.

An accepted Proof of Address, which may include but is not limited to:

  • Official letters/bills/statements from a local authority, public agency or private utility company (gas, electric, telephone), government department, private sector lease, bank or building society
  • Photographic driving licence

We want people to have more choice about where they live and will advertise a property so that applicants will be able to bid for it. Allocations will depend on who bids for a property and so we will no longer be able to advise your position on the list. Nevertheless, you will be able to see the number of bids made for each property.

Fewer bids will mean you have a better chance of getting a similar property. More bids will mean you have less chance of getting a similar property.

Properties will be allocated by priority banding and the date of application.
