Suspension of Bidding and Lettings

Update: In light of the announcement from the Housing Minister on 12 May Housing Leeds is currently looking at how it can resume the allocation and letting of Council homes in accordance with social distancing guidance, but this may take some time.  If you have already been allocated a home, this offer will remain in place and we will contact you to discuss your move in due course.  You do not need to contact us about your move at this point.  Choice Based Lettings will not resume straight away.  Please keep checking your emails and the website for the most up to date information.  Regular updates on the allocation and lettings of Council homes will be shared on the website.

Due to the government’s decision to increase social distancing measures across the country, we have suspended lettings to Council homes via our Choice Based Lettings system. There will be no homes advertised on the website until further notice.  If you have already been allocated a Council home, this allocation will be honoured, but there may be some delays in the home becoming available for you. 

If you have been offered a home from a previous bidding cycle, an officer will make contact with you to discuss your individual circumstances and will be able to offer any further advice and support.  If you have been offered a home with a Housing Association, please liaise directly with the Housing Association for more information.

The Leeds Homes website will be updated with any changes and all applicants with a live application will be contacted to advise when the next bidding cycle will start. 

Tenants' requests to carry out a Mutual Exchange have also been suspended until the current measures have been lifted.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will continue to provide updates should this position change. Thank you for your co-operation
