Coventry Homefinder – re-registration

Coventry Homefinder is changing

The new service will be quicker and easier for you to use.

There will also be some changes to who is eligible to be housed and the way we prioritise banding.

If you have a Coventry Homefinder account, you will be invited to register during June and July.

You must re-register for the service by 6 September 2021 to make sure you stay on the housing register.

If you don't re-register, you can still reapply at any time, but you will be given a new registration date.

What's changing?

The new Homefinder website will be updated and easier to use.

We're simplifying applications too, so there'll be less forms to complete.

The new Homefinder Policy also includes new qualifying criteria:

  • You must have a local connection to Coventry
  • You must have a housing need that is recognised in the new policy
  • If you have a household income over £50,000 or assets over £50,000, you will not be able to join the Homefinder register.

There are also changes to the bands:

  • You may be placed in a higher or lower band than you are currently based on the information and supporting evidence you provide.
  • There are also some new categories of housing need in the banding system, for example, applicants living with friends or family who want their own accommodation or those experiencing financial difficulty in their current property.
