Tyne and Wear Homes:The New Way to Look for a Home.
Tyne and Wear Homes. The New Way to Look For a Home.
From Monday 3rd September Homefinder is part of a new partnership called "Tyne and Wear Homes."
South Tyneside, North Tyneside, Gateshead and Newcastle Councils and their Housing organisations have joined together to form a partnership to help those people in the region who are looking for a home.
The authorities will be keeping their own respective allocations policies but there are some changes to the system.
From 3rd September housing applicants only need to complete one application form. Once you are registered you will be able to view all the properties in the partnership area and place bids for them at www.TyneandWearHomes.org.uk
The bidding period for the homes is now between Thursday 00.01 am and the new extended time of 11.59pm the following Monday.
Customers may now bid on a maximum of 3 properties a week. When they bid they will be able to see their position on the shortlist at that moment in time. The final position on the shortlist will only be available once the bidding has closed. Bids can be changed during the advertising cycle if applicants feel that they will have better prospects on a different home.
From the beginning of October homes will no longer be advertised in the Shields Gazette. They will be available to view in the Homefinder Office (South Shields), area Housing Offices, via the TV if you are a Sky or Virgin customer and online at www.TyneandWearHomes.org.uk
We've been writing to applicants asking them to re-register. If you haven't done so you won't be able to bid for a home.
