Welcome to our new Homechoice website! Apply here to join the new West Berkshire Housing Register. If you're already on the Housing Register and need to re-register, make sure you do this by the 1 March 2021 to keep your priority date. You’ll need to upload your supporting documents to your application before we can assess your application, even if you're already on the West Berks Housing Register.

If you have a current homeless case with us, please email us at to request a password.
Your log in details for the old system will not work on this system. You will need to create a new application using the Register button.
We are dealing with a high volume of calls and emails at the moment. If you need to get in touch with us, we will call you back or respond to your email as soon as possible.

Welcome to Homechoice West Berks

Welcome to HomechoiceWB. This is where you can apply for and bid on social housing. West Berks operates a Choice Based Lettings system, giving you the choice about which properties you’d like to be considered for.

If you are accepted onto the Housing Register, you will have access to bid on properties and track progress. To find out if you’re eligible to join the Housing Register, you will need to complete an application form – just click ‘Register Here’. Make sure you give us as much information as possible, including all the documents we need. For more information about which documents you’ll need to submit, take a look at our FAQs. Assessments are usually completed within 10 working days, and we’ll let you know the outcome.

Adverts run from Thursday at 00:01 (one minute past midnight) to the following Tuesday 23:59 (one minute to midnight). If you’re successful, you’ll be contacted by the Housing Association who own the property. You can find feedback about previous properties we’ve advertised in Property Search – Recent Lets.

For help using this website to apply for housing and placing bids on properties, have a look at the Help section.

To update your application, log in to your account and submit all changes along with supporting documents. 

If you are homeless or about to become homeless, please contact the Housing Operations Team on 01635 519530 or email
