Your FAQ

Question: I am 16 years old, can I go on the Island Homefinder Scheme

Answer: Anyone who is 16 or over can go on the Island Homefinder Scheme. However, anyone under the age of 18 needs to have a guarantor before they can accept an offer of accommodation through a Housing Association. A guarantor is liable for any rent not paid by the tenant so they need to be over 18 and be able to prove what income they receive.
