Homemove is the lettings scheme for council and housing association homes in Adur, Brighton & Hove, Chichester, Eastbourne, Hastings, Lewes, Mid Sussex, Rother, Wealden and Worthing, giving you more choice about where you want to live.
You can use homemove if you are an existing tenant seeking a transfer within your council's area or a homeseeker applying for the first time. The scheme covers all the available council and housing association homes, including sheltered housing.
You need to log in with your homemove number before you can see the property adverts and place your bids. If you’re not registered, you need to fill in a housing application form. Please go to the registering page of this site to find out how to do this.
The demand for council and housing association rented homes in Sussex far exceeds the supply. We regret we are not able to help everybody who applies to us. Therefore we positively encourage you to consider other housing options, such as renting privately, low cost home ownership or mutual exchange. (See the tabs on the left for more about other housing options).
IMPORTANT: information on benefit changes
There are some benefit changes which might affect you if you will be under 35 on 1 April 2018. If you are single, under 35 and claim benefits towards your housing, there may be a deduction from your benefit after this date.
