Welcome to Homesearch, the register for social housing in Bath and North East Somerset. Properties are advertised weekly (Friday to Tuesday) on this website.
IMPORTANT - CHANGE IN ADVERTISING CYCLE.
Homesearch advertising cycle will start 24 hours later at 00.01 am on Friday morning. The cycle will end as normal on the following Tuesday at midnight.
This will help to make properties available sooner for Homesearch applicants.
You can choose which properties you are interested in and can 'bid' online, by text or phone. Demand is high and some people have to wait years before getting a tenancy. We can give you advice about other Housing Options.

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.
