Seven new homes for affordable rent will be available in Welton at the end of September.
The properties, being offered by Acis as part of the Saxon Springs development, are available to households whose needs cannot be met by the housing market.
The available properties include 3 and 2 bed houses, plus 1 bed apartments, and are available to any age group.
These properties will be let through the Choice Based Lettings (CBL) scheme called West Lindsey Home Choice. Properties are advertised through this scheme as they are nearing completion.
In order for people to be able to bid for or express an interest in properties, they need to be registered with the council.
To become registered contact the Home Choices Team through the West Lindsey Home Choice website (link below). The team will assess applications and decide whether people are eligible for social housing and give a priority banding. Individuals will be given a username and password to enable them to log onto the system.
Properties are advertised on weekly bidding cycles and which start on Tuesday night at midnight and close the following Monday night at midnight. It is up to the applicant to check the listings regularly to look for a home to meet their needs.
How the scheme works:
- When you find a suitable home you can make a ‘bid’ or express an interest through the website or sometimes on the phone.
- When the advert closes the bids are shortlisted and checked.
- Each property is usually offered to the bidder with the highest banding and therefore assessed as being in the greatest housing need.
- There are instances however, where properties have a local connection criteria and priority is given to people with a local connection to the location of the property. This is detailed in the advert.
- If your bid is successful you will be contacted by the housing association who owns the property who will set up an interview. If it goes well they will offer you the property and arrange for you to view it.
