UK rental guarantor service Housing Hand has launched a new House Finder service in partnership with Housemates and Uhomes. The service helps students find single occupancy and shared accommodation that they can view online and then book immediately – a relief to students eager to secure their home as soon as their university place is confirmed. Students can use House Finder to specify requirements such as a private bathroom or wheelchair access, as well as search by city or by university and order results by price.

“We are delighted to be providing students with the convenience and choice they have long needed through the new Housing Hand House Finder service. Students can now quickly and easily find homes that suit their personal needs and preferences. With both Housemates and Uhomes on board, students have an excellent selection of properties available to them, with further partners due to be announced shortly, widening the choice of accommodation even further,” said, James Maguire, Head of Sales and Marketing, Housing Hand

Using the House Finder service on the Housing Hand website, students answer a few simple questions before using the company’s booking engine to browse student halls and house-shares. All accommodation can be viewed online and rented immediately, with students selecting and securing their room directly through the platform. Each listing comes with the added assurance that Housing Hand can be accepted as the renter’s guarantor, providing peace of mind for both student and landlord.

The House Finder service also provides a personalised property matching offering, which delivers a tailored approach to house hunting for those who have more time. Well-suited to both students and working professionals seeking apartments and houses, the service matches renters’ requirements with Housing Hand’s trusted accommodation provider partners around the country. Renters can then connect with agents whose listings meet their criteria in terms of location, budget and rental period, with the agents providing personalised recommendations aligned with those preferences.

“By providing a range of accommodation finding services, we are supporting renters with differing needs, priorities and timescales. Our dual focus of making the rental process easier while supporting individuals to find the perfect home has been very well received. With Housing Hand in place as guarantor, renters’ and landlords’ level of risk is reduced too, providing a win for all parties,” said, Graham Hayward, Managing Director, Housing Hand
