How We Allocate Homes
Our properties are allocated based on housing need and in accordance with our Allocations policy.
All applications are assessed by our Customer Service Team, based on your current housing circumstances and are placed within a priority group. Within that group, a grade is awarded.
The level of grade awarded indicates the level of housing need. A higher grade indicates a higher housing need. The date you are awarded the grade is the marker for your position in the queue, within the group.
To find out more about the group and grading process, or for further information on how an application is assessed, please contact the Customer Service Team on 0141 887 8613.
