Changes to Sussex Homemove

From July 2024, Sussex Homemove will be changing. Brighton & Hove City Council will be leaving the partnership and managing their housing advice, homelessness, housing register and choice based lettings services separately.

 For Brighton & Hove City Council customers there will be a new website where you will be able to access Brighton & Hove City Council housing needs services in much the same way as you do now. The website will have a new look but will retain all of the same services and useful information that you are used to now. Please note that the new website will not be live until July 2024 and you should continue to use this site until then.

 For Adur & Worthing Councils, Chichester District Council and Mid Sussex District Council customers, you will continue to be able to access the Sussex Homemove service in the same way as you always have done, right here.


Note: Customers that have an iCloud email address, if you have not received any communication please check your spam/junk folder.

Message from Brighton & Hove City Council

Kubic Apartments – New Development

We are all keen to let these flats as soon as possible and understand how frustrating it must be for potential residents. We are in the process of finalising preparation in view of offering these properties and hope that residents will be able to move as soon as possible. Until the surveyor has visited to confirm all works have been completed to allow for occupation, we cannot confirm a date.  We will continue to provide future updates as necessary. 

Message from Southern Housing:

Due to unforeseen circumstances with the contractor building the Preston Barracks (Saunders Park View) properties, all adverts have been withdrawn to allow applicants to continue bidding. The properties will be readvertised once a new contractor has been instructed to carry out building works however we do not have a timescale for when this will be. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
