Applying for housing

We have a range of different house types and sizes of accommodation, ranging from 1 bedroom bungalows, to 4 bedroom houses available for let.

We participate in SEARCH, the Common Housing Register for East Ayrshire. By completing a single application form on line applicants can register interest in housing with any of the 5 participating landlords.

The Single East Ayrshire Common Housing Register (SEARCH) application is NOW online.

Online SEARCH is an exciting new platform developed by Housing Services in partnership with software company, MRI. Applicants create an account then can apply for housing, manage their application, view their list position and contact Housing Services directly through a personalised portal.

This system will speed up the housing application and allocation process, which will be fully digital from completing the application form to the applicant receiving their keys

Our Housing List is open at all times to anyone aged 16 years and over. All applications will be assessed and prioritised according to their housing need.

If you are interested in applying for a house, you can now complete an application on line using the following link;

If you have a health problem or disability which you wish to be considered, then you will also need to complete an application online to assess the impact of your health and disability on your housing needs.

Your application will be assessed and prioritised according to the points scheme.

To find out about our stock, please go to our Properties available for let section.

When an applicant is being considered for a property, a home visit will normally be carried out to go over the content of the application form and confirm the points awarded.

An offer will be made to the applicant who has the most points for the size and type of house available.
