Welcome to On The Move, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council's Choice Based Lettings scheme. On The Move allows you to bid for council and partner housing association properties that you would like to live in within the borough of Southend.

On The Move allows you to bid for properties that you would like to live in, by advertising available social housing in the Borough.

You may only bid for a property if your application has been accepted onto our Homeseekers' Register. If you are not currently on our Homeseekers' Register, please click on the 'Housing Options Wizard' at the bottom right of this page tab to find out what alternative options you may be able to consider, and once you have completed this, you may complete the application form.  

Our website is your main point of reference to help you to find a suitable home. You can use this website to:

  • Search for available properties
  • Apply for a property
  • View results of previous lettings

On the right hand side of the page and on the tabs above, you can find some helpful topics to get you started.
