1. About Devon Home Choice

Devon Home Choice is the choice based lettings scheme allowing people to apply for social housing in the following areas:

  • East Devon
  • Exeter
  • Mid Devon
  • North Devon
  • Plymouth
  • South Hams
  • Teignbridge
  • Torbay
  • Torridge
  • West Devon

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 Devon Home Choice how it works guide. There is a very high demand for social housing (council and housing association properties) and comparatively very few homes become available. Therefore many people are on the list for a very long time without being made an offer of a home. This option should not be relied upon solely to solve your housing situation, particularly if you think you need rehousing quickly or are homeless now.
