As our offices are now closed, if you have any queries relating to Housing Allocations please email us at housingallocations@eastdevon.gov.uk or call us on 01395 517469.

Home visits

Although most work is continuing as usual during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are significantly reducing the amount of home visits we are carrying out.

Mutual Exchanges

Due to ongoing staffing issues we have had to suspend all new mutual exchanges until the end of September. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Devon Home Choice

Devon Home Choice is now operating again. Whilst properties are now being advertised, there may be delays in landlords being able to let properties which are currently being advertised or in the shortlisting process. Some properties may be withdrawn from advertising where they are required for emergency accommodation.

As we are experiencing an increase in demand there are a few steps that you can take to help us process  applications and changes.

  • Please apply online, rather than by paper application, because it will be more likely to be processed at this time;
  • If your communications preference is currently by letter, please consider changing it from letter to email and ensure that your email address is up-to-date; and
  • If you are able to, please either screenshot, photograph or scan then email to us your completed application forms and/or proofs of evidence e.g. Health & Wellbeing forms, Supporting Evidence forms, letters, etc.
