If you have been accepted onto the Housing Register, you will be eligible to see and bid for available social housing properties using Kent Homechoice.
Kent Homechoice gives you more choice about where you want to live. You have the chance to express an interest in vacant homes that are suitable for you. It also gives you a better idea of the properties available in your area.
Kent Homechoice will advertise empty council and housing association homes daily that are available to let. Properties will be advertised on the internet and via digital television. You can look at the adverts and bid for any homes you wish to be considered for providing you are eligible.
Please note, we will only contact successful applicants when an offer is to be made and if you hear nothing you must assume you have not been successful at this time. Unfortunately, officers within the housing options team do not have the resources to notify you if you are not successful.
We will provide feedback on previous properties that have been advertised so you will be able to see the band that the successful bidder for each property was in and length of time the applicant had been in that priority band. Please be aware that Local Lettings Plans may apply on some developments.
Where there are no expressions of interest from eligible applicants, a property will be re-advertised or a direct let will be considered.
