Tandridge District Council's way of allocating council and partner housing association properties for rent.
The Allocation Policy is used to decide who gets housing, which is essential as there are a lot more applicants for housing than there are vacant properties.
We are currently carrying out a review of our Housing Allocation Scheme. Following discussions with elected members, and consultation with local residents, we have now produced a draft scheme for formal consultation.
Although there are a number of minor changes throughout the scheme, the main changes are the adoption of classes of applicants that will not qualify for an allocation of accommodation, detailed in section 4 of the scheme, and the introduction, at section 10.2 of a framework for assessing the affordability of particular accommodation, prior to its allocation.
We are seeking your views on the proposed scheme before the final version is considered for adoption by the Council’s Housing Committee on 8 March 2016.

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. The first day of advertising will be on a Friday, the last day will be on a Wednesday.
You will not be able to bid or view properties on a Thursday.
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. Your 'bid' must be registered by midnight on a Wednesday. You will be able to bid for up to three properties each week.
Our website is packed with useful information to help you find a suitable home. You can use this website to:

As you may already know we are also working in partnership with three other authorities – Epsom & Ewell, Mole Valley and Reigate & Banstead – on East Surrey HomeChoice.
The aim of East Surrey HomeChoice is to help housing register and transfer applicants apply for social rented homes in any of the four East Surrey areas.
Up to ten percent of all social rented homes that become available each year will be advertised as East Surrey HomeChoice properties and be available for moves across the council boundaries.
This scheme works in much the same way as Tandridge HomeChoice. Available properties are advertised weekly and eligible applicants will be able to bid for these homes. You will see these properties listed as ‘Sub-regional CBL’ when you search for properties on the Tandridge HomeChoice website or in newsletters.
