Welcome to Bucks Home Choice

Bucks Home Choice is the scheme by which social housing is allocated in Buckinghamshire. It is operated by a partnership of Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe District Councils, together with the Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust.

The scheme advertises social rented properties and aims to give more choice about where you live and when you move. There is a severe shortage of housing in the area and therefore you will need to consider all other housing options available to you.

All applicants are assessed according to their housing need, given a priority band and advised what size property they are eligible for.

Once you have received your assessment you can see which properties you are eligible to bid for. This can be done by logging in with your Bucks Home Choice number and date of birth. You decide which properties you would like to be considered for and place a bid on up to 3 properties in each advertising cycle. The properties are usually let to the person in the highest priority band.

Bucks Home Choice Policy Consultation - Update

We have now completed the review of the Bucks Home Choice Allocations Policy and the policy has now been adopted by each Council within the Partnership. We will be implementing the new policy on 1st October 2019, you can view the document on the Bucks Home Choice website. We will be contacting affected applicants in the coming weeks and providing updates on this website.

We are also launching a new website in the autumn. At this time all applicants to Bucks Home Choice will be required a have a valid email address to access the system. If you have an email address you should check that this is correct, you can do this by logging into your account and accessing the 'My details' tab. If you do not have an email address can you please ensure that you create one in advance of this change, some examples of email providers are included for you below;


If you do not have computer access at home you can visit one of the Council offices and or a local library to do this. If you need help and you have no one that can help you to do this please contact your housing officer.
