Housing Options

Sadly there are far more people seeking council and housing association homes in Devon than there are homes available. Even if you are assessed as having a high priority for housing it may take you a long time to find a council or housing association home. Please click here for more information on how long it could take. Most people are unlikely to be successful in finding a council or housing association home.

It is therefore important that you consider all other appropriate housing options, such as renting privately or affordable home ownership.
