How to apply for housing

Top task

There are no longer any Council owned housing stock in Plymouth. All social housing stock is owned and managed by various registered housing providers.

There are over 20,000 social rented homes in Plymouth, ranging from specialist accommodation such as sheltered housing for older people or adapted homes for people with disabilities, to family homes.

You can look at homes available for letting without registration. If, however, you want to bid for a property you do need to be registered.

To find out more about getting registered you can

  • Apply online on the Devon Home Choice website.
  • Pick up an application form from the ground floor of the Civic Centre.
  • Call us on 01752 305496 and ask for the Housing Options Team
