Homesearch to Homechoice

We will be replacing our existing Broxtowe Homesearch system in June, with Broxtowe Homechoice (Opens in a New Window). This is the council’s new Choice Based Lettings system, and is live for applications now. The new customer portal will give you 24/7 access to your application, as well as a chat function which allows you to communicate with us quickly and easily.

Existing Homesearch applicants

For those of you who currently have a Homesearch Application, you are invited to re-apply on the new system, and to do that, you will need to know your current housing registration reference number, so that we can match you with your current application. You can do this now. You will still be able to have access to Homesearch to enable you to place bids on properties, but only until Monday 17th June.

We will be opening our Homechoice Portal for you to bid on properties from Tuesday 18th June. As this will be your first opportunity to bid within our Homechoice system we will be extending our advertising cycle to one week, therefore you will be able to bid for a property in Homechoice from Tuesday 18th June to Tuesday 25th June.
