CBL is a system that allows housing applicants to express their interest in available properties in their preferred area(s).The four preference areas in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown are:
To be eligible for CBL, you must be on the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Social Housing Support List.
CBL will give you the chance to express an interest in a range of residential properties within your area(s) of preference that are suitable for the size of your household. The list of available properties will be displayed from Wednesday to Sunday every week.
When you login to the system you will only see properties that match your areas of preference and bed need.
Specially adapted properties and those designated for senior citizens will not be advertised on CBL.
The properties may be advertised before works required to bring it up to normal standards for letting are completed but all properties will be to normal standards before the formal hand over of keys.
Use the username and password we send you to check the CBL website at least once a week to see if you are interested in any of the properties listed.
If you see a property you are interested in, you should ‘express your interest’. (We will provide a guide to help you use the system)
If you do not ‘express your interest’, we cannot consider you for that property.
If your application is successful, we will contact you.
Where more than one person expresses an interest in a property, the property will be allocated to the person highest on our Housing list who has expressed an interest.
All offers of accommodation resulting from CBL will be subject to our normal Allocations processes including a review of the applicant’s continued eligibility for social housing and Garda & Estate Management clearance.
You can place one expression of interest in each property displayed to you on the system.
You will not be considered for the allocation of that dwelling if you have not expressed an interest in it.
You are welcome to come into the Council offices. Our staff will be happy to help you. You can also use the internet for free in your local library.
Yes you will be removed from the housing list as you be adequately housed.
Your time on the housing list will continue to accumulate as normal. However if you do not express an interest in properties advertised online, you will not be considered for them.
CBL is being introduced as part of the Social Housing Strategy 2020. It will give housing applicants the chance to express their interest in available properties to the Council. The process is designed to be as fair as possible as it gives all housing applicants an equal opportunity to view available properties that meet their needs.
A refusal of an offer under Choice Based Lettings (CBL) will result in the applicant not being entitled to make a further application (bid) under CBL for a period of twelve months
