Bidding for properties

You can bid for up to 3 properties in each bidding cycle. There are 4 ways to bid for properties on Bucks Home Choice:

• Internet

• Telephone

• Text Message

• In person

Things to consider before bidding

• Please ensure that you read the advert in full to see if the property is suitable for your family needs e.g. if the property states it is suitable for a wheelchair user and you do not use a wheelchair, you will not be considered

• If your family requires a specific type of property e.g. ground floor then you will not be considered for an upper floor flat without a lift

• The location of the property

• Whether you can afford to pay the rent

• Whether pets are allowed

Bidding by internet:

• Open the Bucks Home Choice website

• Enter your registration number and date of birth and click “Login”

• Select “Make a Bid” to see the properties you are eligible to bid for

• Click on "Click to view advert" to see the advert

• Click on “Bid” for the property you want to bid for

• Repeat step 4 for each property you want to bid for. If you change your mind you can delete your bid as long as the bidding cycle has not closed

Bidding by telephone

If you have no one to help you and you are unable to place a bid yourself, you can call the telephone number of the partner that manages your application. You will find the numbers in the ‘Contact Us’ section to the left.
