Apply for social housing using Choice-Based Lettings
The Council is a member of the Sussex Homemove scheme, which is a partnership of 11 authorities in East and West Sussex who are operating Choice-Based Lettings (CBL). Choice-based lettings schemes give people applying for social housing more choice about where they live by allowing people to 'bid' on available homes.
You need to join the Council's Common Housing Register to bid on a home in Mid Sussex. The Council's housing register is run for the Council by the Homemove Team at Affinity Sutton.
Please note: Affinity Sutton has recently decided to take control of all transfers within its own housing stock. It will now allow its tenants to apply for a transfer to a new home with Affinity Sutton through its own national choice-based letting system called ‘Home Choice’ at www.affinitysutton.com/homechoice. If you were previously with Mid Sussex Homemove, your application has been transferred to Affinity Sutton’s Home Choice system, and so you will no longer be able to bid for homes through Homemove or remain on the Council’s housing register after 31 March 2015. You should have received your new login details for Home Choice from Affinity Sutton. If you have any questions about this please contact Affinity Sutton's Housing Options Team by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org .
