There is a high demand for council and housing association properties in the borough, therefore, most of our customers will wait some considerable time before they bid successfully for an affordable rented home through Guildford Homechoice. You may, therefore, want to explore other housing solutions, which may be faster and meet your needs in the short or long term. This section provides you with a number of different housing options both in Guildford and around the UK.
To help you find a home that's right for you we offer a range of free advice at the Housing Advice Centre. For contact details click How to contact us.
If you are unsure what type of housing might be available to you, our housing options toolkit will provide you with information and advice.
When you first contact us you will be able to get immediate advice and if appropriate an appointment can be arranged to discuss your housing options. We will give you a checklist of information and documents that you will need to bring along to your housing options interview.
If you think you might become homeless let us know as soon as possible. We can negotiate on your behalf with a relative, landlord, or mortgage lender to delay or prevent you becoming homeless. Most homelessness is preventable if early action is taken. However, if it is not possible to help you stay where you are we would look at the housing options available to you.
