Epsom & Ewell Home Choice
Epsom & Ewell Home Choice is a new way of allocating Housing Association properties that gives our applicants more choice over where they want to live. Every week we will advertise any vacancies on the Epsom & Ewell Home Choice website and an automated telephone service. Applicants can see a full range of available properties and apply or bid for any to which they are matched. The successful applicant will be the person with the highest points/band for the property they have bid for who meets the lettings criteria for the property.
Available properties will be advertised from midnight Thursday through to midnight the following Wednesday and applicants can place up to three bids per week. They are advertised in the following ways:
- Via www.eebc-homechoice.org.uk
- In a newsletter available from the Housing Service
- On display in the Reception area at the Town Hall and other locations which we will add in the future
- On our property information line 01372 732666.
Place a bid via www.eebc-homechoice.org.uk or call 0845 2701908.
In addition to our own local Home Choice scheme, we are working in partnership with three other local authorities - Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge on East Surrey Home Choice. Up to 10% of all social rented homes that become available each year will be advertised through East Surrey Home Choice and will be available to our applicants for inter-borough moves.
East Surrey Home Choice works in much the same way as Epsom & Ewell Home Choice. Available properties will be advertised on our website www.eebc-homechoice.org.uk but instead of using points to select applicants, it will use 'bands' and waiting time.
