Welcome to Homechoice, Redditch Council’s way of allocating housing for rent and shared ownership properties for sale. We aim to give you more choice in deciding where you want to live. Properties that are available for rent will be advertised each week. Shared ownership properties for sale will be advertised each fortnight. You must then tell us which properties you are interested in. This process is known as bidding. You may only bid for a property if your application has been accepted onto our housing register.
Our website is packed with useful information to help you find you a suitable home. You can use this website to:
