Welcome to Homesearch
IMPORTANT – CHANGES TO HOMESEARCH BIDDING
Please be aware that from Friday 28th August 2015 Homesearch Applicants will only be able to bid for a maximum of three properties each week.
Homesearch is the register for social housing in Bath and North East Somerset. Many people want social housing and we prioritise applications.
Housing is advertised weekly (Friday to Tuesday) on this website. You choose which properties you are interested in and 'bid' online, by text or phone.
New drop-in service now available at Keynsham Civic Centre every Thursday 9.30am to 12pm and 1.30pm to 4pm.
Tenancy fraud is unlawful and in some cases is also a criminal offence. Under section 171 of part 6 of the Housing Act 1996 it is an offence to provide false information or withhold information relevant to a housing application; this could result in a fine of up to £5000. In partnership with local registered housing providers, we are committed to identifying and dealing with Tenancy fraud. Fraud may include giving false information or withholding information to obtain housing as well as sub-letting of properties.
If you have information about social housing within Bath and North East Somerset that you believe is unlawfully occupied please let us know by contacting us.
