Why wait for a Social Housing tenancy?
Social Housing in Cornwall is in great demand. Most of the applicants to Homechoice are unlikely to be offered a social housing tenancy and if they were most new social housing tenancies are for a limited period of time and the rents are only 20% cheaper than privately renting in your area. Your Housing Options provides information on alternatives to social housing that may make it easy and quicker for you to keep your home or find a new one. Don't delay any further, follow the three easy steps below and access your personalised options now.
