Guildford Home Choice

Step 1 - Registration

You will be able to apply for properties through Guildford HomeChoice if you are a housing applicant and have registered on the housing register or you are a tenant of Guildford Borough Council or one of our partner Housing Associations and have registered for a transfer. For details on how to apply to join the housing register click who can use the service.

Either at the start of the scheme or when you are accepted on to the housing register we will write to tell you:

  • your housing application number
  • the band your application has been placed in and your priority date. Click prioritising applications for more information.
  • the number of bedrooms you are entitled to.

You must tell us if there are any changes in your circumstances so that we can reassess your application and if necessary make changes to your band and priority date.

Property size

You will only be eligible for properties that are suitable for the size of your family. This is different for rented and shared ownership properties.
