Home Choice

You can bid for council and housing association properties in Redditch here, using Home Choice: Redditch’s system for letting social housing fairly.

Home Choice lets you tell us which properties you are interested in and gives us a transparent way to make decisions. We decide who gets housing based on housing needs, including things like whether you are homeless, living in cramped living conditions, or have medical conditions being made worse by your current home.

Information you supply about your circumstances will give you a Home Choice priority ‘banding’ of Bronze, Silver, Gold or Priority as well as a points score. Generally speaking, the higher your priority and score, the more likely you are to be successful when bidding for a property.

If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness, then you should contact the Housing Options Team and we will advise and assist you.
