Changes in the bidding process for some social homes

The way in which residents in the London boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon and Hounslow can bid for social housing is changing.

Locata is changing the way that properties are advertised and bids are made on their website. Bidding will be open all the time and as soon as a new property becomes available, it will be advertised, so you could see new ones every day and you can place bids on any day of the week.

All new properties will be advertised on Locata for five working days.

From October, instead of having to download a list of all the advertised properties (previously called the freesheet), you will be able to see this simply by looking on the website. To see a personalised list of properties that are suitable for you, just log in to your own Locata account. Properties will be advertised for seven days, so as long as you log in at least once a week, you will not miss any suitable adverts.
