How the system works
You will only be considered for Medway Homechoice if you have
lived in Medway for over two years at the time of applying and do
not have a high level of income or assets.
Factors are awarded to your application, based on the
information that you provide when you register. It is important
that you tell us everything that you think may make a difference to
your application. You must tell us if your situation changes.
Once assessed, your application will either be placed into
one of four priority bands, placed on the inactive register or
removed from Homechoice if you do not meet the criteria to be
registered. For more information about the bands please
visit the Homechoice Priority Bands page.

There are not enough social housing properties for the
number of people registering. This means that it could
take a significant amount of time for you to be re-housed, and many
applicants will never be offered social housing. It is
important if a priority band is awarded to your application that
you consider all types of properties, as bidding for a flats,
maisonette, studio and higher level accommodation may result
in you being re-housed sooner.
