See if you can join the housing register

To apply for social housing, you must first register with the Sussex Homemove scheme.

Sussex Homemove is the choice-based lettings scheme used by most councils in East and West Sussex. It's for home-seekers looking for social housing for the first time as well as for existing tenants wanting to move address.

Please take a look at our Social housing FAQs for more information.

The Council's housing register is run by the Homemove team at Clarion Housing.

Please note: Unless you are a wheelchair user or need supported housing, Clarion Housing tenants are no longer able to join the Mid Sussex housing register.

Instead, please register with Home Choice - Clarion Housing's own national housing system.

For further information, please email:

Our Housing Allocation Scheme sets out how applicants on the housing register are selected for accommodation. The scheme is intended to be open and transparent. Hard copies are available on request.
