Tenancy information

Finding a place to live can be both exciting and difficult. A great place to get started is with our Landlord and tenant guide. GOV.UK also provides a list of housing 'how to' guides.

Visit our homelessness pages if you are currently homeless or threatened with homelessness within eight weeks (56 days).

Island HomeFinder

You can find and bid on housing with Island HomeFinder. The available properties list is updated weekly. You can also get a housing options assessment.
