Applying for a House 

If you are over 16, you can apply to rent one of our homes. Please be aware we have a huge demand for our homes and due to our relatively small stock the turnover in housing is not high.  Applicants to the housing list can therefore expect to be on the list on the list for a significant period of time before an offer of housing may become available.

If you wish to apply to be on our waiting list please download the housing application form and return it to the Cernach officeonce complete. If you require a medical form for you housing application this can be downloaded here. Please download the pack and return it to us by post or email at If anyone has any questions or queries when completing these forms please call the office or pop in and someone will be happy to help you. 


We use a points system to decide who gets a house.  Points are awarded for a range of circumstances to applicants in housing need e.g. overcrowding, medical condition etc. It is important that you understand our Common Allocations Policy April 2020 for awarding points before you fill out an application form.

Have you a change in your circumstances?

If you are an applicant and your circumstances change, you need to notify us as soon as possible so your application can be updated accordingly.  You can contact the office or complete the Housing Application Change in Circumstances Form. If you have submitted your application through the Glasgow Housing Register, then you should log in to their system and update your circumstances through this.
