Homefinder scheme

Residents in Leicester and its outlying areas, including Birstall, Thurmaston and Wanlip in Charnwood, are to be asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown restrictions for at least two weeks, and non-essential shops will be closed. More information - including frequently asked questions and a postcode checker - can be found at

The Homefinder scheme has over 700 properties advertised on the site, from shared houses to executive homes, and over 100 lettings agents and landlords.

Homefinder is a website that aims to improve the standard of privately rented properties.

What does the Homefinder scheme do?

Residents of Charnwood can access the free service to search for properties, check how much housing benefit they may be entitled to and find the right support to help them stay in their current home or move to an alternative one.

The website also has an advice page with budget calculators, videos and downloadable documents, and residents can register to receive property details emailed directly to them.

How does the Homefinder scheme benefit landlords and letting agents?

Landlords and letting agents can advertise their properties for free, and at the same time keep up-to-date with current legislation, have access to documents, videos and toolkits to help manage properties, information on available grants and loans, and free training opportunities.

Landlords or letting agents looking to advertise their properties on the website can register at the Homefinder website.
