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 is changing.

East Lothian Housing Association (ELHA)

ELHA is moving 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.

Anyone interested in applying for housing with ELHA is now able to register with These Homes and apply for available properties through These Homes from the middle of April.

Other associations

More details will be available shortly, but in the meantime you should contact the associations directly for information about how to apply. 

Applicants and their advisors can ask housing association staff for further information and advice. 

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.

Contact details are in Housing Associations in East Lothian.
