This is a frequently asked question but it is difficult for us to give accurate information about your prospects of being made an offer within specific timescales. This is because the waiting time will be different for different areas and for different kinds of property. The wait for a three bedroom house, for example, will usually be longer than the wait for a two bedroom flat.

Waiting times are also difficult to predict because there is a limit to how many properties become available each week and in some areas, properties become empty less often than in others. Other factors include how many properties we own of the type you are interested in and in the areas that you want to live in.

A couple of examples might help you to make sense of how this works in practice. If, for example, you want or need a house with four or more bedrooms you will have to wait a long time because whg only owns around 280 such properties so they do not become available very often. If you want a two bedroom bungalow anywhere in the borough you will again have to wait some time because whg only owns 340 such properties.

You can get an idea of waiting times if you check the results published every week on the recent lets page. The results will give you some idea of how long you might have to wait for a specific property type in a particular area.
