Welcome to Cornwall Homechoice
Would you like a £10 voucher for giving your views? If yes sign up to take part in our focus group. We are looking for people who are registered on Homechoice, to take part.
What is a Focus Group?
A focus group is a chat over coffee and cake about a particular topic.
What is the topic?
The Council and Cornwall Housing would like to hear your views on Short Term flexible Tenancies
What is a short term tenancy?
A short term tenancy would mean that if you moved into a council home, your tenancy would be for a set amount of years, for example, 5 years. When that time came to an end, a review would be held to see if you needed a smaller or larger home and if you were still eligible for council housing.
If you would like to take part, please express your interest by 26th May, either by: email to email@example.com or call 0300 1234 161 and ask to speak to the Tenant Engagement Team.
Homechoice gives you more say in deciding where you wish to live and makes the process much more open, letting you see which properties are available, what the rent is and who can bid for them.
Once you have completed your online application form we will assess your need and write to you with your Banding, you will then be able to bid for up to 3 suitable properties advertised on this website Saturday to Wednesday each week. Properties are generally allocated to the bidder in the highest Band and who meets any stated criteria i.e. local connection to the parish etc.
Homechoice only advertises social housing to rent. If you are interested in an affordable home to own (e.g shared ownership, discounted sale etc) you need to register with Southwest Homes. Please visit the South West Homes website where you will be able to see if you are eligible for any ownership schemes, view available properties and complete an application form.
