New Housing Register System Open for Re-registration

Go to www.homechoicewestberks.org.uk to re-register.

This must be done by 1 March 2021 to keep your priority date. If you need help, contact the Housing Allocations Team.

All current applicants will need to re-register.

We have also revamped our Choice Based Lettings system, ‘HomechoiceWestBerks’, so that it is easier to navigate with frequently asked questions published on our website to help answer any queries.

Due to COVID-19 there may be changes to how Housing Associations are carrying out viewings and applications. They will let you know what you need to do.

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. Asking to be considered for one of the homes advertised is called 'bidding'.

Everybody accepted onto the 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.

Once you've provided all the documents we need, it will take up to 10 working days to assess your application. However if you are threatened with homelessness we will endeavour to prioritise your application.

Sometimes our emails may go into your junk folder. Please check this if you are expecting an email from us.
