Once available to let, properties are advertised online with Daventry HomeChoice. Registered applicants will have the opportunity to bid for a property. When the advertising week closes, Daventry Homechoice  will go through all applicants who made a bid and allocate according to housing need and local connection. If no one with required housing need and local connection has bid, then they would look at adjoining parish connections and then district connections. Daventry Homechoice then send through successful applicants to NRHA in priority order. NRHA carry out home interviews and confirm affordability and local connection of the applicant.
