APPLYING FOR A HOUSE
Provanhall Housing Association maintains an open list and anyone aged 16 or over can be apply to us for housing.
Housing application forms are available at the Association's office and can also be requested in writing, by e-mail or telephone and also be downloaded by clicking here.
We will assess your housing need and advise you in writing of your points total within 20 working days of receipt of your application.
If you are homeless or threatened with homelessness you should contact Glasgow City Council on 0141 276 6159.
The Association also operates an internal transfer list in order to try and meet the needs, demands and aspirations of current tenants. Transfer forms can also be requested in writing, by e-mail or telephone and can also be downloaded by clicking here.
Applicants can apply for an internal transfer for:
Medical Mobility reasons
Aspirational reasons (no housing need)
HOW DO WE ASSESS HOUSING APPLICATIONS?
We have 3 main categories of applicants for the administration of our Allocation Policy.
Internal Transfer applicants
Housing list applicants
Applications are assessed in accordance with the Association’s Allocations Policy which adheres to the principals of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 to ensure reasonable preference for housing is given to persons who:
Are living in sub standard accommodation; or
Are occupying overcrowded houses; or
Are living under unsatisfactory housing conditions; or
Are homeless or threatened with homelessness
Applications are assessed within 20 working days of being submitted and after this time applicants are notified in writing of their priority for rehousing, together with a breakdown of how points have been assessed. Applicants will not be considered for an allocation until the assessment process is completed and they are eligible to be housed.
Any applicants being considered for an offer of housing will be visited to establish that all details recorded in the application form are correct. Tenancy checks will also be carried out with current/previous landlords where appropriate.
AVAILABILITY OF HOUSING
Demand for housing greatly exceeds the supply of housing which becomes available for let. Applicants should therefore be aware that we are unable to meet the needs, demands and aspirations of all applicants on our housing list and that tenants could remain on the waiting list for some time before being made an offer. Applicants should also be aware that their position on the list can change on a regular basis as new applicants are admitted to the list.
You can exchange your house with the Tenant of another Housing Association or Local Authority. Conditions apply. If you are interested in doing this you should contact the office for advice and information.
