Where and how to apply to Housing Associations

The three largest East Lothian housing associations (ELHA, Homes for Life and Castle Rock Edinvar) formerly used a website called HomeHunt to allocate their properties. This has changed.

East Lothian Housing Association (ELHA)

ELHA has moved to a new digital lettings service, called ‘These Homes’, which has been developed in partnership with six other housing associations across Scotland. 

Anyone already registered with Homehunt must re-register with These Homes by 16 April 2021 to keep their original registration date, and will be asked to provide their Homehunt number at the point of registration.

Castle Rock Edinvar and Homes for life

Both Castle Rock Edinvar and Homes for Life have moved to a new digital lettings service called Scotland Home Search.

New Housing developments

Housing associations develop new houses all the time, at a variety of rent levels. New and forthcoming developments can be found on our Affordable Housing page.
