How to rent a home
We advertise all our properties either through Devon Home Choice or Cornwall Homechoice. We also showcase our properties on our Property Search and on our Twitter or Facebook pages.
Properties are let to successful bidders who are registered on Devon Home Choice or Cornwall Homechoice (we do not hold our own waiting list), so if you wish to bid for one of our properties you should register on one of these schemes.
How do I register?
Devon Home Choice has an app which can be downloaded:
- Android phones or tablets: http://tinyurl.com/DHCAndroid or search for ‘home connections’
- Apple iphones or iPads: http://tinyurl.com/DHCApple or search for ‘homeconnect’. If searching on an iPad please change the search to iPhone only.
These are advertised in the same way as the properties we re-let, you can also see our list of latest developments.
Swapping your home
If you are already a social housing tenant you will find our tenants advertising for a property swap or 'mutual exchange' on HomeSwapper. You will need approval from both your current landlord and from us to do this. To find out more read:

Our customers can also advertise their properties on our Facebook page.
