When one of our homes becomes empty we would normally advertise it through the local council’s choice based lettings scheme, unless we have a tenant on our transfer list in urgent need of a move.

Sometimes we a property might become empty that we believe will have low demand. So that we are using these properties as well as we can, we may offer these to applicants who have low priorities.
