Leicestershire Choice Based Lettings is a partnership between the seven councils in Leicestershire (excluding Leicester City which has its own web site) and a large number of housing association partners.  By coming together to form Leicestershire Choice Based Lettings, we are able to offer those looking for an affordable home, the widest choice of housing and an easier way of being considered for vacant properties as they arise.

For a full list of our partners and their contact details, please click on partners.

Using this service gives you more choice in deciding where you want to live.  Instead of waiting for an offer of accommodation, you can see which properties are coming vacant and ask to be put forward for them. Properties that are available for rent and shared ownership will be advertised each fortnight. 

You can tell us which properties you are interested in. We call this 'bidding' but it won't cost you a penny.  Before you can bid for a property you must be accepted onto the Hinckley and Bosworth Council's housing register or be registered already with one of the other Leicestershire councils and have an approved connection to Hinckley and Bosworth. Click here to apply on-line using the online form.

If you are interested in moving to a neighbouring council area you will be able to bid for a selection of properties in the rest of Leicestershire. You can bid for these properties without having to register again with those councils. To see these properties click on Search at the top of the page and select 'Leicestershire properties to rent'.

Not everyone will be successful in getting a council or housing association home. Demand is much greater than the number of vacancies. Check on the results of Recent Lets to find out if you are likely to be successful in the near future.

If you would like help to use this service, please contact the council's housing team /customer services at or contact your landlord, if you are already a housing association tenant. Click on How to Contact Us on the left or use the Contact Form by clicking above.
