To apply for social rented housing in the District, you must first be accepted onto our housing register.

What is the Housing Register?

The Register is the waiting list for people who are eligible to apply for social housing in this District. This District is part of a Kent wide partnership through the Kent Housing Group and all register applications and properties are processed via the Kent Homechoice website, in line with the Sevenoaks District Housing Allocations Policy.

What is the Sevenoaks District Housing Allocations Policy?

This Policy sets out the process for allocating social housing through the Register to ensure that local people with the greatest housing need are prioritised. This includes who can apply to the Housing Register, how applications and Bandings are assessed and how properties are allocated.

An updated Housing Allocations Policy came into effect from 1 May 2019. It has been updated to ensure that social housing is allocated to local people with the great housing needs.
