Rented housing

There is a range of social housing (council or housing association homes) to rent across Somerset. All social housing available for rent in Somerset is advertised and let through Homefinder Somerset.

To be able to express an interest in a rented home you must first register an application via the Homefinder Somerset website. Once registered please remember to provide the relevant documents requested as failure to do so may hold up your application. Once your application has been approved you will able to view the homes being advertised and express an interest in accommodation that you wish to be considered for. However, please be aware that due to high demand the wait for social housing can often be lengthy.

As the wait for rented accommodation can often be long you may wish to consider a range of different housing options available, depending on your circumstances. For further information about other housing options available please visit Homefinder Somerset webpage help with finding a home.
