Helping you find a new home in West Berkshire

Due to COVID-19 there are limited properties being advertised, some weeks there may be none at all. If there are no properties that match your bedroom need you will not be able to see anything on HomeChoice.

When there are properties to advertise please note we are not able to advertise when any viewings or lettings are likely to take place.

HomechoiceWB is the Choice Based Lettings Scheme for West Berkshire.

HomechoiceWB gives you more choice about where you want to live. In the past, West Berkshire Council selected a property for you. With the new system, you can decide which properties you would like to be considered for. Asking to be considered for one of the homes advertised is called 'bidding'.

Everybody accepted onto the Common Housing Register can take part and bid for homes in West Berkshire. The properties advertised belong to Housing Associations who are our partners. West Berkshire Council does not own any properties which are available through Choice Based Lettings.

Properties will be advertised on a weekly basis. You will be able to see basic details about each property available. To see a presentation on how to bid please click here

We will provide feedback on previous properties that have been advertised so you will be able to see how many points the successful bidder for each property had.

If you are homeless or about to become homeless, please contact the Housing Options Team, the Duty Officer is available on 01635 519 588.

If you would like information about other Housing Options please follow the link to the West Berkshire Council website. A wide range of housing information is available including information on Private Rented Accommodation, Threshold Loans, Shared Ownership and Improvement Grants.

If you wish to speak to someone in person, West Berkshire Council have a public desk at the Market Street office. The opening times are; for Common Housing Register queries please attend between 10am and 1pm and for Housing Advice queries please attend between 1pm and 4pm.
