Hampshire Home Choice

Hampshire Home Choice is a choice based lettings system of allocating Housing Association or Council properties. This means when a Housing Association or Council property becomes available, it will be advertised on the Hampshire Home Choice website www.hamsphirehomechoice.org.uk
You can access Hampshire Home Choice by clicking the following link www.hampshirehomechoice.org.uk On the site you will be able to register for housing and bid for properties.

Hampshire Home Choice has changed the council’s allocation process for the benefit of our applicants - instead of Housing Officers matching you with properties, you will be able to "bid" for vacant properties suitable for your needs on the website or via an automated telephone line. A bid means indicating an interest in a vacant property; no money is required to bid. A User Guide explaining how the new system works is available.
Hampshire Home Choice is a partnership between East Hampshire District Council, Eastleigh Borough Council, Havant Borough Council, Test Valley Borough Council and Winchester City Council. Applicants registered in Winchester will usually be able to bid for properties in East Hampshire, Havant, Test Valley and Winchester council areas and not for properties within Eastleigh area.
