Homesearch is the name of Bath and North East Somerset Council’s Housing Allocation Scheme. It sets out the way that social housing is allocated within the district and how priorities for those registered with the scheme are determined. Homesearch is based upon the principles of Choice Based Lettings. The scheme offers people a choice about where they would like to live and gives priority to those people with the most housing need.
Homesearch operates by a partnership between Bath and North East Somerset Council and Registered Housing Providers (also known as Registered Social Landlords or Housing Associations), who offer social housing tenancies in the area.
