East Surrey Subregional - Reigate & Banstead

Step 1 - Registering

You will be able to apply for properties through Reigate & Banstead Home Choice if you are on the housing register.

The process for applying is in 3 parts:

  1. Complete the self-assessment to establish whether you are likely to qualify
  2. Complete the main application form (allow approx 1 hour)
  3. Provide the documentation requested within 21 days of submitting your application (failure to do so will mean you need to reapply)

To complete the main application form we recommend you have the following information to hand for you and all household members:

  • NI number
  • address history
  • income and employment details
  • details of any welfare benefits received
  • bank details
  • medical information.

If you are accepted on to the housing register we will write to tell you:

  • Your housing application number
  • The band your application has been placed in and your priority date. (Click Prioritising Applications for more information)
  • The number of bedrooms you are entitled to.

You must tell us if there are any changes in your circumstances as soon as possible so that we can reassess your application and if necessary make changes to your band and priority date.
