Choice based lettings (CBL) makes it easier for people to apply for housing with councils and housing associations. This has replaced the former housing waiting list system.

Information about properties can be heard by calling our property information line on 08459 400 473.

Epsom & Ewell, Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge councils have joined together to create East Surrey Home Choice.
The scheme helps housing applicants apply for social rented homes in any of the four East Surrey areas. At least 10% of all social rented homes available each year will be made available for cross-boundary moves. For example an applicant on the Tandridge Housing Register will be able to apply for East Surrey Home Choice advertised homes in any of the four areas.
The East Surrey Councils are in the process of developing the scheme in detail. Here is a summary of how East Surrey Home Choice will work:
