Before making an application you will need to complete a brief pre-assessment questionnaire on the Herts Choice Homes website.

Working in partnership with four other housing organisations in Hertfordshire, we advertise and offer homes to applicants on our waiting list through the Herts Choice Homes choice based lettings scheme.

After completing the questionnaire you will be presented with a personal action plan outlining your most suitable housing options. If you are eligible for a transfer you will be asked to complete a Housing Needs Register application. 

All transfer applications are awarded a priority banding based on their housing need, in accordance with the Icon for pdf Housing Allocations Policy.

The process of applying for a transfer and bidding for available properties is the same for existing council tenants as it is for home seekers (those people not currently living in a council or housing association property). It's likely that we will require less supporting evidence about your circumstances as we already hold the information required.

For further information about the application process and how applications are prioritised, take a look at the applying for housing section of our website.
