Homechoice Housing Register
Homechoice is the choice based system for letting council and housing association homes to rent in Cornwall. Partner landlords advertise their vacant properties on the Homechoice website and in newsletters available in the Councils’ One Stop Shops and libraries.
How homechoice works
Please use our online self assessment toolkit before applying for homechoice. You may well be eligible for other housing options. When you register with Cornwall Homechoice, we will assess your housing need and give you details of your priority banding, your eligible date, and the type and size of property you can apply for. You can find more information on how homechoice works here.
The Cornwall Homechoice policy has been reviewed and updated. The updated policy is scheduled to take effect from June 2016. To view the agreed changes please visit the Council Allocation Scheme page.
Is homechoice right for me?
Applicants in the most urgent need for housing have the best chance of bidding successfully for social housing. With nearly 29,000 applicants on the register most people will not be allocated social housing. Use our online housing options tool to make your housing action plan.
There are currently over 28,000 households registered with Cornwall Homechoice and only a small number of vacancies each week. You need to seriously consider your other options if you are in a difficult housing situation or are looking for a new home.
To find out more about Cornwall Homechoice, download our Cornwall Homechoice Policy on the Council Allocation Scheme page.
