Selby is a member of North Yorkshire Home Choice and you can register for housing online and have the chance to move to properties either in Selby or throughout most of the North Yorkshire region.
The following link will take you to the Home Choice website - www.northyorkshirehomechoice.org.uk.
This is a new way of letting properties which allows you to choose from regular vacancy lists with properties you are interested in. Once we know who is interested in an available home, the person with the greatest need will be offered the property.
- Anyone over the age of 16 may apply subject to the following restrictions.
- Applicants aged 16 and 17 years are only eligible to join the register if they meet the following conditions.
- They are not a looked after child as defined by s.20 of the Childrens Act 1989.
- They must have an appropriate support package to enable them to sustain their residency.
- They must have an identified trustee who can hold any tenancy on their behalf until the age of 18. Trustees can be a person or an organisation, and will not have financial liability.
Applicants leaving care will need to have a support package to be eligible to join the register.
Applicants subject to some aspects of immigration control, who do not have recourse to public funds or who can not prove they have recourse to public funds, may NOT join the register.
Properties are advertised on the website and provided you are registered, you will be able to express an interest in renting any suitable property, subject to the details in the advert.
