How homes are allocated

Finding a home in Tyne and Wear

As each authority will operate under its own lettings policy when allocating properties through Tyne and Wear Homes, your application will be assessed differently in each area.

This could result in you being awarded a higher priority for housing in one area than another.

Remember you can still bid for properties in any area, even if your application has not been assessed against the specific lettings policy. Your application will be automatically placed in a band/category, but this may not reflect any housing need you may have.
