New Coventry Homefinder Policy

The new Coventry Homefinder Policy has now been implemented (from 31st July)

If you are already registered with Coventry Homefinder, you will have received a message on your Homefinder account explaining the changes. Please log in to your account regularly to check your messages.

If you are in a priority band, you will have received a letter explaining any changes to your application. This will also show your 'effective date' - the date that you applied for priority banding. This will be used to prioritise shortlists and ensure that households who have been in housing need for the longest get prioritised first.

A summary guide to the new policy is available here.

The full policy is available to read here.

The reports which went to Cabinet are available to read here.


Informing Coventry Homefinder of changes to your contact details or circumstances

If your details or circumstances are incorrect you must make these changes to your application yourself.

  • Go to Login/My Account . Log in to your Homefinder account and insert the changes in the relevant sections. 
  • Submit the changes by scrolling through all 9 pages of the registration form and clicking 'SUBMIT' at the end of the form

The Coventry Homefinder Team are unable to validate these changes unless you have clicked submit at the end of the registration form. 

Please be advised that the Coventry Homefinder Team will not be responding to any messages received regarding changes to customer details (emailed or through your online account messaging facility).  All changes must be submitted through your online account as detailed above.

Annual Renewal of your Homefinder Registration

All registrations will be reviewed annually, on the anniversary of your application, through a message sent to your account. To review your application you must:

  • Go to Login/My Account . Log in to your homefinder registration by inserting your registration number and memorable date in the fields requested and check the details that are on your account to ensure that they are correct.  It is vital that your account holds the correct details to contact you; and that the members of your household included in your application are correct.

  • Submit any changes that you have made by scrolling through all 9 pages of the registration form and clicking 'SUBMIT' at the end of the form

  • If you do not need to make any changes to your registration form it is still essential that you check through all 9 pages and click 'SUBMIT' at the end of the form for your renewal to be validated. 

If  you do not submit your registration at your annual review your Homefinder account will be CLOSED after 125 days. If your account is closed you will need to re-register and will lose any benefit of your previous registration date.

We recommend that you log in to your account at least every 6 weeks to check for online messages.  The risk of not checking your online account could result in you missing the annual renewal message and your application being closed. 

Housing Benefit Changes

Changes have been made to the way that Housing Benefit is calculated. For up to date information on all the changes to the benefits system, including a 'bedroom calculator' to see if you are under-occupying if you currently live in a social home, please click here: Benefits News
