Latest User Guide and Introduction
Kent Homechoice is the choice based lettings scheme for all council and housing association homes in Kent. Download the latest User Guide.
Kent Homechoice gives you more choice about where you want to live. You will now have the chance to express an interest in vacant homes that are suitable for you.
Every fortnight Kent Homechoice will advertise all empty council and housing association homes that are available to let. Properties will be advertised on the internet, digital television and personalised freesheets.
You can look at the adverts and bid for any homes you wish to be considered for. This guide provides a summary of who can bid and how to bid. You will need to be registered for housing with the council where the empty home is located.
Councils and housing associations in Kent Homechoice will generally only let empty properties to people who have made an expression of interest through Kent Homechoice. It also gives you a better idea of the properties available in your area. You can also view what level of priority the successful applicant had and how long they waited for a new home.
Everybody accepted onto a participating council’s housing register can take part and bid for homes in the council’s area. All homes that are advertised belong to either the council or a housing association. Each advert will confirm who is the landlord of the empty property.
Properties will be advertised on a two-weekly basis. You will be able to see basic details about each property available. There is more information about the advertisements on the adverts section.
We will provide feedback on previous properties that have been advertised so you will be able to see the band or points that the successful bidder for each property had.
You should be able to find all the information you need in the Scheme Guide, but please contact us if you have any questions about Kent Homechoice. You can find our contact details in the contact us section.
