Homefinder Somerset: Is your application accurate and up to date?

| District

It is vital that your details on Homefinder Somerset are accurate and up to date. If your details aren’t correct you may not able to bid for some homes or you may miss out on being offered a home.

In particular, you need to ensure that:

  • Your phone number and email address are correct on your application. If they aren’t, landlords won’t be able to contact you
  • Your address is correct. If your address is not correct, your application will need to be re-assessed and it is likely that you will not be considered if you come up for a property
  • Details of the areas where you have a local connection (e.g. because you live/ have lived, work or have immediate family there) are correct. Please ensure that you have confirmed in Section 5 of the application form which parish(es) you currently live and work in. This also needs to be confirmed for your partner if you are applying with someone else. This is important as some homes require applicants to have a local connection to a particular parish. If this is not clear on your application you will not be considered for these homes
  • Your application correctly shows if you do/ do not have a cat, dog or other animal, as pets are not allowed in a number of homes.

What do I need to do?

To check to make sure your details are accurate, you will need to log on to and check your details online. You do not need to call us to check your details. 

I think my details are up to date - do I need to do anything?

It's always best to double check your details so that you don't miss out on the opportunity to be housed. Log on, check your details and have peace of mind. 

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
