Welcome to Westminster's Choice Based Lettings Scheme

Please note: The flyer will be phased out in the next few weeks which will coincide with a new website 


Policy Consultation (runs until 8th February 2019): The Council is consulting on a new Policy for Tenants in Housing Renewal Areas. The proposed policy sets out the rehousing offer, financial compensation and general support for council tenants where there is a need to acquire their homes to enable regeneration in an area. It also covers the support and help available for other tenants in housing renewal areas (such as private tenants and homeless tenants in temporary accommodation). For further information please click here https://www.westminster.gov.uk/housing-strategies



Any property available for letting through Choice Based Lettings is advertised via Home Connections. Properties are available for bidding each week from Wednesday morning to midnight on Sunday. The Housing Options Service will contact shortlisted applicants only to view properties once the bidding has closed. For details, of how to bid and how the scheme works download the PDF user guide from the 'Download Documents' link menu on the right.
