New website far easier to use on smartphones and tablets

Published: Wednesday 6 May 2020

The Homefinder Somerset website has been upgraded. The website now automatically resizes if it is being used on a smartphone or tablet. This means that it will be far easier for people to register or view and bid for homes. 

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Published: Wednesday 25 March 2020

Due to the restrictions in place due to the Coronavirus there are likely to be:

  • Fewer homes advertised on Homefinder Somerset in the next few weeks.
  • Delays in landlords being able to let homes.
  • Fewer council staff available to process applications and respond to queries.


To help during this difficult time, please:

  • Ensure that your email address is up to date. Councils and landlords will be using email and web messages rather than sending letters
  • Regularly login to your Homefinder Somerset account to check for messages
  • Use the online application form wherever possible. Paper application forms are less likely to be processed at this time.
  • Check the websites of partner councils and landlords for further details. Please see the links on the Partners page
