About North Yorkshire Home Choice

Welcome to Homechoice

The way North Yorkshire allocates its council and partner housing association properties for rent and shared ownership properties for sale. 
We aim to give you more choice in deciding where you want to live and find a home which best suits your needs and aspirations. You need to register your application, provide supporting documentation and have your application approved before you can apply for a property.  To check whether you are eligible and qualify for the North Yorkshire Home Choice Housing register click here.

Properties that are available to rent will be advertised each week. Adverts run from Thursday through to Tuesday.  (You cannot search for a property on a Wednesday)

Once your application is active you must tell us which properties you are interested in.  This process is known as bidding and is free.  You can bid on upto 3 properites each week. To give yourself the best chance of finding a suitable property you should search the website once a week. Please read the advert fully and only bid on properties you have been advised you are eligible for.

If you bid on properties you are not eligible for this will be a wasted bid and you will not be considered for this property.
