    A Choice-based Lettings scheme gives people who are applying for rehousing with a council or housing association choice about the property they wish to live in.

    With Choice-based Lettings properties that are available to let are advertised as-and-when they become available and a deadline is set for interested applicants to express an interest in the property.  This is known as 'bidding'.

    The bids for each property are then looked at and the applicant who is assessed to be in the greatest housing need is usually given first refusal of the property.  Adactus Housing Association, Chorley Community Housing and Beech Housing Association participate in choice based lettings in each local authority that it has properties in and roughly 50% of properties are allocated this way.
