About us - Information for social landlords

Homefinder UK is a national move-on service specialised in offering immediately available social housing, wheelchair accessible, retirement properties and some PRS for those in need. Since being established in 2013, the scheme has successfully rehoused over 1000 homeless households into permanent social housing across the country.

Since 2018, we also run a dedicated move-on project for domestic abuse victims and survivors called Revive. This service has been Highly Commended by the prestigious UK Housing Awards 2020 in the ‘Innovator of the year: Tenant services’ category.
We have also just published a white paper based on a survey of 690 homeless households that chose to rehouse nationally via Homefinder UK to avoid spending years on council housing waiting list. You can access the white paper here.

Housing for those who need it

The scheme is available to anyone willing to move nationwide including: 

  • Homeless households 
  • Applicants living in temporary accommodation 
  • Private sector tenants threatened with homelessness 
  • Overcrowded families & social tenants

Properties are made available by partner housing providers and advertised at any time. Uniquely, we also offer mutual exchanges through integration with House Exchange and thereby gain access to the national Homeswap Direct service.
