East Surrey Subregional - Tandridge

Step 1 - Registration

You will be able to apply for properties through Tandridge HomeChoice if you are a housing applicant and have registered on the housing register, or you are a tenant of Tandridge District Council or one of our partner Housing Associations, and have registered for a transfer. For details on how to apply to join the housing register click Who Can Use the Service or complete an online application form by clicking here

Either at the start of the scheme or when 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 so that we can reassess your application and if necessary make changes to your band and priority date.

Property Size

You will only be eligible for properties that are suitable for the size of your family. The following table tells you how we normally decide on the number of bedrooms that you are eligible for:

        Number of Bedrooms
 Household Type  Bedsit  1  2  3  4  5
Single Person  Bedsit  1 Bed        
Couple    1 Bed        

 

Household with one child

 

     2 Bed      
Household with two children      2 Bed  3 bedrooms    

Household with three children

       3 bedrooms    


Household with four children

       3 bedrooms  4 Bedrooms  


Household with five or more children

 

         4 Bedrooms  
             
             
             

Because of the shortage of larger properties, applicants who are eligible for four bedroom properties may also be offered large three bedroom properties on occasions.

Children will not usually be expected to share a bedroom where they are of opposite sex and at least one of them is over 7 years old or where they are of the same sex and there is an age gap of at least 10 years.

A separate bedroom is required for each member of the household over the age of 18 (with the exception of partners and same sex siblings)

Eligibility for certain vacancies.

  • Houses
    Priority for houses will be given to households with at least one dependant child under 16 years of age.
  • Ground floor flats
    Priority for ground floor flats will be given to applicants who have been awarded priority for this type of property on medical grounds unless there is no suitable applicant with medical priority.
  • Sheltered housing
    Applicants for sheltered housing must normally be aged 50 or over.  Before an applicant is offered sheltered housing, an assessment will also be undertaken to determine the applicant's suitability for sheltered housing and whether they are likely to benefit from the support available.
