Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Because of the ongoing effects of the Coronavirus there are likely to be differences in the way that homes are let. This is to comply with government guidelines, and ensure that both you and staff stay as safe as possible. This might lead to same delays in the letting process which will be explained to you at the time if successful in your bid. Please see individual local authority and landlord websites for further information, links can be found on the Partners page of this website.

To help during this time, please:

  • Regularly login to your Homefinder Somerset account to check for messages. Councils will be sending messages to your Homefinder Somerset account rather than sending letters
  • Ensure that your phone number and email address are up to date. Landlords will seek to contact you by phone or email rather than sending letters
  • Use the online application form wherever possible. Paper application forms are less likely to be processed at this time.

We are a partnership of Local Authorities and Housing Associations working together to make the process of finding a home simple and transparent for applicants.

You will then be able to use our Choice Based Lettings service to apply for homes that you are interested in.
