Applying for a Home

We advertise all our available properties on the Homehunt website, and on our Facebook page. Adverts are also available in libraries, local council offices, Citizens Advice Bureaux and our office. Please note that we no longer advertise in local newspapers.

You can apply for a property by logging into your Homehunt account, by phoning the office, by letter, or by calling into our Haddington office. All you need is the address of the property you are interested in and your homehunt registration number.

You can apply for as many advertised properties as you wish at one time. The order in which you apply could be very important to you. If you qualify for more than one property at the same time, we will assume that the property you applied for first is your first choice and we will disregard any later applications you have made.

If you are successful in applying for a property, we will arrange for you to view it. Please do not ask the current tenant to let you see inside an advertised property as this could be intimidating for them.

Unless you are taking part in the My New Home process, you will be expected to pay the first month’s rent when you sign your Tenancy Agreement.  If you arrive at your viewing and sign up appointment without your first rent payment, your offer may be withdrawn.
