We allocate our properties with Homehunt, a choice-based letting system.
Choice-based letting is a different way to allocate properties without traditional waiting lists and points schemes.
It makes you more involved in the process of choosing a home you want to live in.
It is quick and easy to register online. You can apply for whichever property interests you – the choice is yours!
We allocate the tenancy from the list of people who have expressed an interest, giving priority to the household that makes the best use of the property and has the highest level of housing need.
If you have a significant housing need, (for example, you are homeless, overcrowded or have a medical need) Homehunt will assess your circumstances and may award you a priority pass.
Properties are advertised online at homehunt.info and in the “Press and Journal” newspaper’s “Your Home” supplement, which is published every second Tuesday.
Applicants are welcome to use our dedicated Homehunt computer in our reception area, to register online, find out which properties are available and to apply for homes. Our staff can offer assistance if you need help.
You can access our allocations policy here, or you can request a copy from our office.
We’ve created a handbook with the help of tenants, for tenants. It has been designed as a guide to refer to at the start, during and at the end of your tenancy.
We have over 1900 properties across North East Scotland, including general needs, amenity, sheltered, very sheltered, mid-market rent and shared ownership.
