Apply for social, sheltered or housing association housing

There are over 20,000 social or housing association homes in Plymouth, ranging from sheltered housing for older people, adapted homes for people with disabilities and family homes.

All available social and housing association homes are advertised through Devon Home Choice. To apply for a property you must join the Devon Home Choice housing register.

Once your application has been accepted they'll write to you to confirm what band your application has been placed in and what type of home you can bid for.

For any queries regarding property allocation after bidding has closed, please contact the landlord directly. The contact details will be on the property advert.

For all new applications submitted, change of circumstances or supporting evidence relating to your Devon Home Choice application there is a 20 working day target for assessment.

At present in Plymouth we have a backlog that we are working hard to reduce and we are currently assessing applications and updates received the week starting Monday 7th November 2022.

Your application will be suspended pending assessment. We aim to process as quickly as possible and we will write to you in the post or by e-mail to notify you of your banding.
