Island HomeFinder Scheme

Island HomeFinder

Island HomeFinder is a partnership between the Sovereign Housing Association, Southern Housing Group, Vectis Housing Association and ourselves. It replaces traditional allocation of housing where Lettings Officers match applicants to vacancies. The applicants would have priority on the waiting list and usually matched on a points system.

It allows new applicants for social housing, and existing tenants seeking a move, to apply for available vacancies. Applicants can see all the available properties. Under the new system they can make a bid for any home which meets their housing needs.

You can use the Island HomeFinder website to:

  • register a housing application
  • search for available properties
  • apply for a property
  • view results of previous lettings

It also has useful information to help you find a suitable home.
