These Homes is LIVE

Castlehill properties are allocated through choice-based letting scheme, These Homes (NES) which will replace Homehunt (NES) from 22 March.

These Homes gives applicants greater choice and control in the process of finding a home.  Allocation is based on those who have expressed an interest in the property, with priority given to the household which makes the best use of it and has the highest level of housing need. Operated in the North East jointly by Castlehill, Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association and Hillcrest Homes, These Homes will advertise all available properties on its website for these landlords every two weeks.

If you have any queries or need support to complete the registration process you can contact us on 01224 628119 or TheseHomesNES@castlehillha.co.uk

To apply you must register with These Homes:

What you need to do

You will need to register with These Homes by going to thesehomes.com and completing an online application.

Current Homehunt applicants will need your Homehunt registration number. This is so you can keep your original registration date and means that we can transfer any priority on your Homehunt account to your new These Homes account.

You must register by 16 April 2021 to avoid losing your original registration date and Priority Pass award date.

Priority Passes are now included during the registration process to ensure we capture all of your needs.

Castlehill stopped advertising homes on Homehunt on 15 March 2021 and will resume advertising on These Homes from 20 April 2021.  If you do not register by 16 April 2021 you will lose your original registration date.  This could affect when you may be offered a property with us.
