What is Homehunt?

  • Homehunt is the national web service for affordable housing.
  • You can browse and bid upon all the available types of affordable homes on offer throughout the UK as advertised by our landlord partners. Home seekers are provided with one place and register, to search and apply for affordable housing right across the UK.

Who will get priority?

  • The banding system is based on housing need and enables us to target those with the greatest housing need, while still allowing people to apply for re-housing. The answers given on the application form will enable us to see which band you fall into and how many bedrooms you need. Typically a property would be offered to the person in the highest band who had been waiting for the longest time.
