Somerset HomeLet interactive website is the new way of advertising and finding a private home to rent in Sedgemoor, West Somerset, Taunton Deane and North Somerset. It’s free and easy to use for both home seekers and landlords. This “one-stop-shop” service is provided by the four local authorities and supported by Hinkley Point C, to help:
Home seekers to directly access suitable private sector housing via search facilities individually related to needs – by rent, location, size and type of accommodation. People using the site can also check affordability by using the built-in Housing benefit calculator.
Landlords have free advertising of their vacant properties and rooms, and can also easily manage their portfolio . Landlords and letting agents can upload properties easily and free of charge, notify whether they are accredited by the housing partnership and add the legal essentials such as a current gas safety certificate. The listings will stay “live” for three months unless a tenant is found in the interim.
The website was recently unveiled at the Somerset West Landlords Forum, so landlords and Lettings Agents are still busy uploading their properties - keep looking as more properties are being registered every day!
