Cheshire West and Chester - New Housing Allocations Policy


Changes to how you bid on a home

Changes to how you bid on a home

The way social housing is advertised in the Cheshire West and Chester area is changing. From Monday 14 December West Cheshire Homes will introduce daily bidding.

What does this mean for you?  

All social landlords, including Weaver Vale Housing Trust, will be able to put an advert on the West Cheshire Homes website for any vacant property they have on any day of the week, rather than waiting to advertise the property on a Thursday.

This means you will need to check more regularly on any potential vacancies that may come up otherwise you may miss out on being able to bid for a property in your chosen area.

Why not set up a property alert?

To prevent you from missing out on bidding for a potential vacant property, why not set up a property alert which will automatically notify you when a property that meets your needs becomes vacant, just follow the steps below

1. Log into your West Cheshire Homes Account, Using your usual email address and password

2. Click on the Property Alert box

3. Click on each of the options and indicate your preferred choices

4. Indicate your preferred email frequency

5. Click save and your property alert is ready to go.

If you are looking for a home, please make sure you are registered with West Cheshire Homes - you can register here - If you have any questions about setting up this alert please contact West Cheshire Homes here -
