What is Choice Based Lettings?

Choice Based Lettings is a method of housing allocation widely used in the United Kingdom and it has proved particularly successful with units that are difficult to let.

Choice Based Lettings were introduced on a pilot basis in a number of areas in the city: Finglas, Darndale and parts of the North East Inner City.

At present, when vacancies arise in these areas the allocations process can sometimes be very lengthy. Long term vacant properties are easy to identify and pose a higher risk of being vandalised and, in some cases, can put adjacent houses and families at risk to the same vandals. There is also a loss of revenue to the Council.

Under the new scheme vacancies that come about in these areas will be advertised in the media and people can register their interest in them with the Council.  It is hoped that this will lead to a quicker turn around in vacant properties. This pilot scheme will run for six months and may be extended to other areas if it proves to be successful.

There will be a closing date before which applicants must register their interest.
If a number of applicants express an interest in a property the final offer will be made to the applicant with the highest list position for that particular type of property (longest on list, highest points and most suitable family size).

All offers of accommodation will be subject to the usual estate management checks. In the case of transfer applicants, only tenants with a clear rent account will be considered.
