Before you are able to apply for one of our houses, you must register with Homehunt. This is the system that we use for allocating our properties. You will not be able to apply for properties unless you are registered.
All available properties will be advertised on the Homehunt website. Adverts are also available in libraries, local council offices, Citizens Advice Bureaux and our office.
You can apply for a property by logging into your Homehunt account, by phoning the office, by letter, or by calling into our Haddington office. All you need is the address of the property you are interested in and your homehunt registration number.
You can apply for as many advertised properties as you wish at one time, but the property you apply for first will be used as your first choice if you qualify for more than one.
If you are successful in applying for a property, we will arrange to carry out a home visit and for you to view it. Please do not ask the current tenant to let you see inside an advertised property as this could be intimidating for them.You will be expected to pay the first month's rent when you sign your Tenancy Agreement.
Homehunt has approximately 33,000 thousand people registered across 26 Local Authorities in Scotland. Applicants only need to register once - not individually with each landlord. Recent changes also allow applicants to do more on-line.
