Hampshire Home Choice uses a banding system to assess and prioritise applications. There are four bands:

  • Band 1 - Urgent Need
  • Band 2 - High Need
  • Band 3 - Medium Need
  • Band 4- Low Need

You will be assessed as having a:

  • Registration Date (date you applied to join the Housing Register) and a
  • Priority Date (date you went into your assessed band).

Applications are priortised by the following:

  • Band 
  • Priority Date
  • Registration Date.

This means those in the highest band with the longest Priority Date will have the highest priority.
