Housing for the over 55s

Devon Home Choice

Council and housing association homes that are available to rent are advertised through Devon Home Choice.

If you are over the age of 55 you are usually eligible for 'sheltered' schemes, which are built, or adapted for older people, or for those with a disability. They usually have an onsite manager.

If you plan to join the register you will have to be assessed as being in housing need, as well as having a local connection. This is explained in the user guide.

The user guide also tells you:

  • how banding works (we do not register band E)
  • how to make an application
  • how to view available homes
  • how to bid on a property
  • how successful applicants are selected
