We rent 1,500 properties in Ayr, Girvan, Maybole, Prestwick and Troon as well as many of the villages. View full details of their locations.
Our Allocations Policy gives priority to those in housing need. It aims to ensure equal opportunity for all sections of the community and to contribute to sustainable communities. Direct applications from the general public and existing tenants who desire a transfer are welcome. If you are currently a tenant of East or South Ayrshire Councils as well as applying direct, you may wish to ask your local housing office about the possibility of a nomination to us via the agreements that we have in place with them. A full copy of our Allocations Policy is available here (in pdf).
or contact our office to request a form be posted to you. Perhaps more conveniently, you can now apply online. Irrespective of how you wish to apply, we will be delighted to provide assistance.
Once we have received your application we aim to send you a letter confirming your points total and the size of accommodation you qualify for within 15 days.
All information on your form will be checked and we will normally visit you in your home before an allocation is made.
We operate an open access system in which anyone who is 16 years of age or over can apply. However, given the relatively low turnover of vacant properties your prospects of being housed by us will be limited, particularly if the points you are given are low. This is particularly the case if you have chosen to be considered for accommodation in Ayr, Prestwick and Troon where the demand greatly exceeds the supply.
