What is Homeseeker?

Homeseeker is a common housing register for the allocation of social housing properties in Torfaen.  

Homeseeker is run as a Choice Based Lettings scheme. This means that applicants have the opportunity to see which properties are available to rent and can choose whether or not to express an interest in them. The process of expressing an interest is called bidding.

Full instructions on how to register and bid for properties are available on the Homeseeker website.
