Applying for council housing in Richmondshire

Find out about the Home Choice scheme, how to apply and how homes are allocated.

North Yorkshire Home Choice

We let properties through a choice-based lettings scheme called North Yorkshire Home Choice. 

North Yorkshire Home Choice is the result of us joining up with partners to advertise and offer empty homes on our waiting lists. 

Who can apply

There are rules about who can apply to join the register and how applications are prioritised. These are set out in the  North Yorkshire Home Choice Allocations Policy (pdf / 574 KB)

All applications are placed into one of four bands - emergency, gold, silver or bronze, based on an assessment of housing need.

How to apply

You can apply online, and find out more about the scheme, on the North Yorkshire Home Choice website
