To apply for housing with us please read the information below. 

We have changed our process slightly for applying for housing and you will now be required to book a 30 minute telephone appointment using the link below for our staff to carry out a Housing Options telephone appointment. This appointment will discuss your current housing circumstances and explain how our application and allocation process works. This is also an ideal opportunity for you to ask any questions that you might have. If you wish to proceed in applying with us after this telephone appointment you will then be sent a link to fill in our online application form. If you have any further questions please contact us on or phone us on 0141 881 0638.

Our Policy was changed in 2019 following extensive consultation. This was due to changes contained within the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 and also do the end of the Common housing register between East Renfrewshire Council, Barrhead Housing Association and Arklet Housing Association – which ended in February 2018. A copy of our new policy can be found within the download section of this website.
