We work in partnership with East Lothian Housing Association (ELHA) to advertise all of our available properties through a Digital Lettings Service, These Homes. This gives applicants the choice of what type of property they would like to live in and where they would like to live.
Before you are able to apply for one of our advertised properties, you must be registered with These Homes. This applies to everyone including people who already have a tenancy with us.
To register, all you have to do is go to These Homes and register online. You will receive a reference number, which you should make a note of, and the registration process will also assess if you may qualify for any priority. Once this is done you can start to apply for available homes.
You can sign up for a weekly e-mail which will list any suitable available properties. Adverts run on a 9 day cycle, Tuesday to the following Thursday. To apply for an available property you will need to log into your account, and will need the address of the property and your These Homes registration number. You can apply for as many advertised properties as you wish at one time. You can also apply for an available property by phoning ELHA or visiting their offices.
We allocate homes to those who make best use of the property and have the highest level of need. If you are successful in applying for a property, we will arrange for you to view it. Please do not approach the property or ask the current tenant to let you see inside as this is their home and it could be intimidating for them.
If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness, please also contact East Lothian Council directly on 01620 827 827 for advice and assistance.
If you still need help with registering, completing a form or require a new paper application form, please contact us on 01620 829300.
