How to get a home
We have 515 properties to rent in East Kilbride and usually only 30 properties become available each year.
We don’t have our own Housing List instead we are part of the Homefinder Common Housing Register along with South Lanarkshire Council, West of Scotland HA, Clyde Valley, Cairn Housing Association & Arklet Housing Association.
This means you fill in one application for and can go on the waiting list of 6 landlords Here’s the link to the Homefinder application form.
There are additional forms if you need to:
- move home on medical grounds
- move home to either receive or give care and support
- change your original application/tell us about a change in your circumstances
We allocate our properties to the applicants(s) with the highest points at the top of one of the of the 5 lists we use.
Homefinder isn’t the only way to get a house. As a tenant of a social landlords you can ask to carry out a Mutual Exchange – this is where two social housing tenants (this includes Council tenants) swap properties to help meet their changing household needs. Here’s a link to the application forms you and the person you want to swap with need to complete and hand in to us.
All social tenants looking for a Mutual Exchange in South Lanarkshire (and further afield) need to register with House Exchange. To register your details, please visit the House Exchange website
More details on mutual exchanges can be found here. Please note you need approval from both landlords before an exhcnage can take place.
