Welcome to Homefinder UK
Homefinder UK is a national housing mobility scheme helping individuals and households who want or need to move to other parts of the country. This might be to find a home that better matches their household size, personal or financial circumstances. If unsure whether this scheme is right for you and to see the full list of the type of applicants we work with, please read here.
Households can move to be closer to family and friends, to access employment or education, or simply to move to a home that is more appropriate to their needs. If you are looking to move within your current local authority boundaries then you should contact your local council rather than register for the scheme.
To be eligible for Homefinder UK you must be a tenant of or registered with a participating landlord or council. If you are not sure if your landlord is participating you can email [email protected]
