How do I apply?
To apply to live in one of our homes you must have an active Property Pool Plus account. To register for an account, visit www.propertypoolplus.org.uk and follow all of the registration steps. We will require proof of ID, (depending on your current circumstance you may also need to provide further information).

I already live in a Halton Housing home, but I want to move.
If you are already living in a Halton Housing home and would like to move, you will also need to register on Property Pool Plus. Once we have confirmed your proof of ID and accepted your application, you will be placed in a band that reflects your housing need. You can then bid on available properties that are advertised each week.
Bidding on properties
You can bid for up to three properties in each weekly bidding cycle. When you place a bid, the system will show how many other higher priority bids are above you. You can change your bids at any point while the weekly bidding cycle is open.
A list of qualifying applicants that have placed bids will be produced when the cycle closes. The list will prioritise applicants in order of their band, and application or priority date. For more information on how to place a bid look at the How to Place a Bid document in the resources section.
Every 12 months we will write to you to check your housing situation and confirm that you wish to stay on the housing register. If we don’t hear from you within four weeks of sending you the letter, we will assume that you no longer wish to remain on the register and your application will be cancelled.
