Prioritising Applications

Property Pool Plus uses a banding scheme to prioritise applications.

All new housing and transfer applications received for rented accommodation will be assessed and placed in one of 6 bands, A to F. The table below sets out the banding scheme and gives examples of those applicants who would be eligible to be placed in each band. To be eligible for priority bands A-D, an applicant must have a local connection to the area in which they are hoping to be housed (more information regarding local connection can be found in the FAQ’s)
