Council Housing in Stockport - Stockport Homechoice
Homechoice is Stockport homes choice based lettings scheme that covers the Stockport area. If you are interested in a home in Stockport you first need to register by completing an application form for rehousing.
Stockport Homes currently manage the housing stock on behalf of Stockport Council.
Over a thousand households a year find a new home through Homechoice, both with Stockport Homes and local housing associations.
It is an open and clear way of allocating homes, with properties advertised in the local press and on our website.
Registered applicants can then 'bid' (express an interest) for up to three properties each advert depending on where they would like to live. Homes are offered to households with the greatest housing priority.
We also publish the results of the adverts, so applicants can see how properties have been allocated and make best use of their bids in the future.
You can also bid for properties in Stockport through Pinpoint.

Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I arrange a face to face registration interview ?
Yes. Just telephone us on 0161 474 2975 and we will arrange an appointment for you.
- Can young people aged 16/17 apply for a council property?
Young people aged 16 or 17 years old can register with Homechoice, however they cannot apply for properties until they are 18. If a 16 or 17 year old has nowhere to live, then we will work closely with Social Care to make sure they have appropriate accommodation until they are ready to have their own tenancy.
- Who can apply for properties?
Most people can apply for properties through Homechoice, but there are some people who are unable to register. These are either people from abroad fitting in to certain categories, or applicants who are not considered suitable to be tenants due to Anti-Social Behaviour or rent arrears. Those aged 16 or 17 years old can register with Homechoice and start to build up
'time on list' points, but are not usually able to apply for properties until they are 18.
