Information for housing associations

A ‘FREE’ service to advertise your ‘immediately available’ or ‘hard to lets’ to our national database of applicants

From time-to-time, housing associations will experience difficulties in letting certain types of properties. This could be for a variety of reasons such as:

  • Problems with the local authority nominations process
  • Lack of demand for certain property types
  • A legacy reputation affecting the area

Delays in letting properties due to the above factors can escalate. As a result, the costs in lost rental income can range from £1,000 to £10,000 for longer term voids. In addition, empty properties can attract other problems linked to anti-social behaviour and can become a worry and concern for neighbouring tenants.

Ensuring you reach the right tenants for success

Unlike Zoopla or Rightmove, advertising with Homefinder UK ensures that you reach the right audience - a database of over 30,000 eligible applicants who are ready and willing to move.

The benefits of working with Homefinder UK are numerous - just ask Elaine Woon-Aziz, Lettings Manager at Peabody. In this video, Elaine discusses the high acceptance rate, quicker voids turnaround, and value for money.

But that's not all - with our powerful platform, you can advertise your properties with virtual tours and floor plans to give prospective tenants a better idea of what you have to offer.
