How to apply

We own 2579 properties and let around 150 each year.  Most lets are made to applicants from our waiting lists and some are let to homeless referrals made by Glasgow City Council.

A list of the types of properties and their location can be found here.

We operate an open housing list which means that anyone over the age of 16 years old can apply to us and be admitted to our housing list.  Our Allocations Policy sets out how we allocate our homes and you can view this by clicking here for the full version and here for a summary version. 

Most of the properties which become available to let are two bedroomed tenement flats in Bridgeton and Calton.  We have a limited number of larger family homes and even fewer of them become available for letting.  We have approximately 2,000 applicants on our lists and last year, on average, an applicant with Medium Priority had waited around 18 months on our queue before being offered rehousing.  For those who we rehoused last year, their average waiting time is shown in the table.

To submit an online application to us, follow the steps noted and at the end, press submit.  We will aim to contact you again within 15 days to confirm the outcome of your application.  Your provisional assessment letter will include the Priority Needs Group your application has been awarded, the size of property for which you qualify, the type of property you have chosen and your area preferences.  You will also be sent information on recent lets in our areas.    

Alternatively, you can download an application pack here.  This includes further information on the process for assessing your application.
