IMPORTANT UPDATES DUE TO ONGOING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, Grampian Housing has made the following changes to our services:

Housing Applications
We are currently only able to prioritise urgent cases to assist in preventing homelessness.

Mutual Exchanges
Unfortunately we are not accepting any applications for mutual exchanges at the present time.

Housing Applications
HomeHunt is continuing to register new applicants and assessing priority passes.  Please contact HomeHunt on 01224 628101 or email homehuntnes@castlehillha.co.uk

 

 

Grampian Housing Association operates a Choice Based Lettings scheme to let its houses and flats for rent in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray. Our lettings scheme is called HomeHunt North East Scotland (NES) and is operated jointly with Castlehill Housing Association and Sanctuary Scotland.  Full details on how this works and how to apply for a home can be found by clicking on the HomeHunt NES logo below:-

Choice based lettings is a different way of letting properties from traditional waiting lists.  It gives applicants greater choice and control in the process of finding accommodation.  Applicants register on our system by completing a short form and we advertise all our vacancies as they arise.  Once registered, you can apply for any property that you are interested in.  A short list of bidding applicants will be used to determine the successful applicant; based on giving priority to the household that best matches the property type and also considering housing need.  You will only be contacted if we are considering you for the property you have bid for, typically this would be within five working days.  Therefore if you don't hear from us within this timescale you will not have been successful on that occasion.  You should continue to bid for properties that you are eligible for and interested in when properties are next advertised.  If you have a significant housing need, (for example are homeless, overcrowded or have a medical need) you can complete a short form allowing us to access your circumstances and award you a priority pass.

If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness, please also contact your local authority directly for advice and assistance.

Available properties are advertised fortnightly online at HomeHunt NES.

You can download a copy of our Lettings Policy here for further information.

How to register with other landlords

It is also advisable to register with other landlords to increase your chances of being housed.  For applicants in Aberdeenshire and Moray this can be done by applying at www.apply4homes.org.uk

Mutual Exchange

If you are a tenant of a local authority or Registered Social Landlord and have a Scottish Secure Tenancy you may also want to consider registering with House Exchange (www.apply4homes.houseexchange.org.uk).  This free online database advertises properties of tenants who want to move and who are willing to consider a mutual exchange with another tenant.  This gives you access to nationwide mutual exchanges.

Mid Market Rent (also know as intermediate rent)

Due to the huge demand for rented social housing in Aberdeenshire and Moray, the majority of people who apply for social housing may never receive an offer.  Therefore, we recommend that you consider all other available housing options.  Mid market rent is a form of affordable housing with the private sector.

Typically tenants would pay rent at lower than the normal market rent levels within their local area but rents would normally be higher than what a council or housing association tenant would expect to pay.

If you are interested in applying for mid-market rent please visit Home Connections.

Applying for shared ownership housing

To apply for shared ownership vacancies you should download, complete and email this application form to ownership@grampianhousing.co.uk.  For more information about shared ownership and to find out about current vacancies please click here.
