Homefinder UK

Welcome to Homefinder UK.

Homefinder UK helps council and housing association tenants, and households in temporary accommodation, to move to a different socially rented home in other parts of the country. 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. Homefinder specialises in helping households who wish to move away from their current location, and works in partnership with social landlords and the House Exchange mutual exchange service. 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 a participating landlord and named on the tenancy agreement. If you are not sure if your landlord is participating you can email [email protected]

To be eligible for Homefinder UK you must:

  • Be a tenant of a participating council or housing association, or have been placed in temporary accommodation by a participating council
  • Not going through possession or eviction proceedings
  • Have a clear rent account or an agreement in place with your landlord in order to ensure outstanding rent is repaid
  • Have no ongoing anti-social behaviour issues

There may not always be the right type or size of properties available that you need or it may be that we are not advertising properties in the area(s) you wish to move to. This may be for many reasons but it is always worth checking back on a regular basis. If you wish for us to contact landlords in any area please use the email address above and let us know which areas you'd like to move to.  Properties are often advertised from Friday-Monday so it is especially important to visit the site at weekends if you can. You will need to keep your login and password safe as you will need these to access the site and bid for properties.
