We’re starting a new housing allocation system that puts the power of choice into the hands of Angus home seekers from the start of November. The Choice-based Lettings System will see us and our housing assopciation partners advertise properties for let to registered applicants on a single website – Angus Homefinder. Applicants can bid online for the properties where they want to live. All housing applications will have to be made online (there will no longer be paper application forms), with housing options advice provided as part of the application process. Existing applicants will not need to do anything, all applications will be automatically reassessed under the new policy and applicants will be notified by letter of their new banding along with log in details for the new online Housing Register. New applicants will be able to apply online from Monday 2 November. We’ll advertise available homes and their details on our Angus Homefinder website from Monday 16 November, allowing people to bid for the properties they want.
