APPLY FOR SOCIAL RENTED HOUSING 

Our new digital lettings service, These Homes, opened for registration on 22 March 2021.

Please note vacancies will not be advertised immediately, so we will be approaching Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council and Moray Council for nominations in the meantime. You should therefore ensure that you are registered for housing with these local authorities if you want to be considered for current vacancies with us. 

If you have a current application with Homehunt, you should have received a letter or email advising you what you need to do. You must register with your Homehunt application reference no later than Friday 16th April 2021 to avoid losing your original date of registration and Priority Pass award date.

Please register at www.thesehomes.com or call us on 0300 123 9279. For more information on the launch click here. 

Full details on how this works and how to apply for a home can be found by clicking on the These Homes logo below:

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

How does it work? 

Our digital lettings service operates differently from traditional waiting lists. Applicants are given greater choice and control in the process of finding accommodation by applying for properties that they want to live in. You can apply for a vacancy in three simple steps:   

  1. Register on our system by completing a short form
  2. Check our weekly advertised vacancies at www.thesehomes.com 
  3. Apply for the properties that you are interested in 

A short list of interested applicants will then 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 applied for.  

If your application for a property has not been successful, you should continue to apply for properties that you are eligible for and interested in.  If you have a significant housing need, (for example are homeless, overcrowded or have a medical need) you may qualify for a priority pass, so you should ensure that all details you give at the time of applying are correct.

OTHER HOUSING OPTIONS

Due to the huge demand for rented social housing in Aberdeenshire and Moray, many people who apply for social housing may never receive an offer.  Therefore, we recommend that you consider all other available housing options to increase your chances of finding a home that suits you.  

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 (they are setting up a new system - link to follow)

Mutual Exchange (Current Social Housing Tenants)

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, we are not accepting any applications for mutual exchanges at the present time. This will be reviewed when the current restrictions end.

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 at www.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 (Let's Choose)

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.
