Once you’ve been accepted onto the CBL waiting list, the basic steps are:
- Find a property: Logging into the CBL system and searching through advertised homes to find any you’re interested in
- Check you can apply for it: some properties are only suitable for single people, families, or disabled people.
- Apply: this is known as ‘bidding’, but it does not involve money. You can bid online, by phone or by text.
Waiting times can vary greatly and this depends on factors such as demand for specific areas, the type of home you apply for, the housing need you have and the number of homes that come available that suit your needs.
