How we allocate our homes
We operate an open housing list. This means that anyone over the age of 16 years old can apply to us directly to be considered for housing. Our Allocations Policy is points based and ensures that properties are offered to those in the greatest housing need. You can view a copy of the policy here.
We also accept nominations for housing from some local authorities and we help alleviate homelessness in Scotland by allocating a proportion of our vacant properties to Statutory Homeless people, through Local Authority homelessness protocols.
How do I apply for a house?
Since 2016 the Association has offered a Housing Advice service to all applicants looking to be rehoused in Glasgow and Ayrshire. The Housing Advice process allows applicants to talk with our trained housing staff to discuss their particular needs and complete an application form, as appropriate, either in our office or by telephone appointment.
At the interview we will be able to give you a realistic indication of whether we would be able to offer you housing and we can also advise you on alternative housing options which might be more appropriate. We can also give advice on budgeting for a new house, benefit issues and any other support you may require before considering taking on a tenancy. During the interview we will provide you with a copy of our Housing Advice booklet.
If you wish to apply for housing please contact us on 0141 550 5600 to request a Housing Advice interview. If you are unable to travel to the office or if you stay in an outlying area we can arrange for the interview to be conducted by telephone. Demand is very high for Housing Advice appointments. If you are unable to attend, or no longer need your appointment, we would strongly encourage you to let us know so that your interview slot may be offered to someone else in housing need.
