Choice Based Letting
To give you a greater say over where you live, all RSL properties in Caithness are now allocated through choice-based lettings. Sheltered housing is excluded from this scheme.
You must BID for the properties you WISH TO LIVE IN. If you do not bid you will not be offered general needs housing in Caithness.
You will need to have an active Highland Housing Register (HHR) Application.
Available properties are advertised on the landlords websites and in the housing offices and service points.
New properties can be added daily, please check the websites regularly as properties are usually only advertised for one week. Remember it is up to YOU to bid for properties.
To bid you must register your interest before the closing date, you can contact the landlord and complete a register of interest form, you can bid online via the advert and you can email or telephone any of the offices.
The property will be allocated to the person who registered an interest and has the greatest housing need.
If you are not successful you will not hear from us.
Home visits to discuss your housing situation are part of the allocation process with Pentland Housing Association.
