Bernicia's Waiting List MovingSoon

The choice-based lettings scheme (CBL) gives people the chance to choose which housing association home they want. It works on a bidding system as and when properties become available.

When you find a property that you like and is also suitable for your needs, you then make a “bid” (or application) to be considered as a tenant for it.

You must register with a CBL to bid on any of our properties.

Here are the regional CBLs:

Tees Valley Home Finder

Northumberland Home Finder https://www.northumberlandhomefinder.org.uk/

Durham Key Options

Tyne & Wear Homes https://www.tyneandwearhomes.org.uk/

Sunderland City Council*

*Sunderland City Council do not operate a Choice Based Lettings Scheme but do have nomination rights for Bernicia Homes vacancies

Bernicia holds a waiting list for properties that aren’t let through a Choice Based Letting Scheme. You must also be registered with a CBL to be eligible for a property on this list.

This has come at a really good time just when we needed it. The house is perfect with two bedrooms – we wouldn’t have been able to afford it without the shared ownership scheme.
