Welcome to Cornwall Homechoice
Important Change in Bidding Days from November
From November you will be able to view and bid on properties from a Thursday morning until the following Monday at Midnight. This will start on 3rd November 2016. These changes have been made to allow landlords to let their properties quickly
National Fraud Initiative - For information only - No Action required
Cornwall Council has asked us to let you know that they are taking part in an exercise called the National Fraud Initiative that promotes the proper spending of public monies. You do not need to do anything; the information is to let you know whats happening with the information we hold on Cornwall Homechoice. Click here for more information
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 Help to Buy Southwest (formerly Southwest Homes). Please visit the Help to Buy Southwest website where you will be able to see if you are eligible for any ownership schemes, view available properties and complete an application form.
