How do you decide which band a property is advertised in?

A property will be advertised with a preferred band, decided randomly by the computer system, according to the following quotas:

  • 60% for Band 2
  • 40% for Band 3
  • Band 1 will have preference for all properties, regardless of the preference band advertised, to reflect the urgency of their housing need, unless a property has specific restrictions applied to it such as an age limit (these would be clearly set out in the advert). Any bid from a Band 1 applicant will receive preference above bids from applicants in any other band.
