Bid for properties Hackney

What is Hackney Choice?

Hackney Choice is a choice based lettings scheme allowing applicants on the housing waiting/transfer list to have greater control over where they live. You can apply for advertised properties, rather than wait to be allocated a home.

How long will I be on the register for?

Waiting times are long. The vast majority of people who join the register will never receive a property.

Use our waiting time calculator to find out the minimum time you can expect to wait on the register:

How we decide the winning bids

Following the checks, we contact the top five eligible bidders and invite them for a viewing. We usually contact them within a week by letter or phone.

Affordable rents properties

From April 2012, a proportion of housing association properties will be advertised at the government’s new Affordable Rent tenure, instead of at social rents which is the tenure of all Hackney Council properties.

More about affordable rent properties.

Housing Moves scheme

If you want to move to another council property within London, you might benefit from the Mayor of London’s Housing Moves scheme. All council tenants and housing association tenants can apply under the scheme, as long as they have a secure or assured tenancy.

The Mayor of London also runs a scheme to help tenants who are aged 60 and over to move to other parts of the country from London. You can find out more on the Seaside and Country Homes site.

You can also can get paid for downsizing – households moving from properties that have more bedrooms than they need, may benefit from our cash incentive scheme.

More information about Housing Moves, moving to the countryside and downsizing.

But the age determines the rarity of banknotes which has become the defining factor of its valuation. As a result, rare banknotes are very precious and sold at a very high price than their own on various market places for collection. Coins Coins are disc-shaped metal-made objects used as a form of money or as an alternative to banknotes for small purposes.
