Apply for housing with choice-based lettings

At Johnnie Johnson Housing, we have adopted a choice-based lettings approach to letting our homes. It is easy to use and gives you the control to make decisions about where you want to live and which home is most suitable for you. Discover how you can apply for housing online.

What are choice-based lettings?

The choice-based lettings system is an easy-to-use system that most housing associations will use to advertise homes which are available to rent. To apply for housing, you need to register and then you can search for and bid on the properties you wish to live in (subject to eligibility).

Bidding for properties

Before you can start bidding for homes via the choice-based lettings scheme, you will need to register with us so we can check your eligibility.

After we have checked your eligibility, you will be able to bid on the homes you would like to live in. You can usually bid for more than one home at a time, but it is worth checking before you try to bid on too many.

How a decision is made

Choice-based lettings usually works on a priority basis, with each customer being given a ‘priority status’ depending on their housing need at that time. Once the bidding window closes on a property, we will inform the successful applicant and the move-in process will begin.
