Welcome to Select Move

Select Move is a Choice Based Lettings allocation scheme, where applicants proactively express interest on properties they wish to be considered for rather than wait inactively on a traditional waiting list.  We advertise  housing association properties and some shared ownership homes, with all major housing associations using the scheme to allocate their homes.  There is no ‘Council Housing’ in the area covered as Preston, South Ribble and Chorley Councils have transferred their housing stock to Housing Associations, and the scheme acts as the Housing Register in these areas.

Properties available to let  may  be  added Monday  to  Friday  and are  advertised for  5  days. If you are eligible and qualify to join the Select Move or Open Property Register there  is no  limit to the  number of  properties that  you  can  place an expression of interest on via the  Select  Move  mobile app or website, or telephone 0800 655 6785 to speak to the partner of your choice who will be happy to help you.
