Q3. What happens after my application?

Your application will be assessed by Devon Home Choice staff at your Local Authority and you will either be accepted onto the register or your application will be rejected. If your application is rejected, you will receive a clear explanation from Devon Home Choice staff as to why. If you are accepted onto the register, you will be given a Banding between A and D which indicates your level of housing need.

A = Emergency need, B = High need, C = Medium Need, D= Low Need, E= No need

If you are assessed as Band E you will still be included on the register and will be able to bid although you have been assessed as having no housing need. This category relates to those who are housed adequately but may be struggling to pay rent or have an insecure tenancy.
