Apply for a House

Almond Housing Association has a stock of 2514 properties, and anyone over 16 years old can apply for a house with us.

Almond Housing Association, Link Group and West Lothian Council work together to operate the West Lothian Housing Register. This means that you only need to fill in one application form to be listed for all three housing providers.

How do I apply?

The quickest way to register for a house is by applying online. Please contact us if you have any questions or need assistance.

Application and keys

What happens next?

Once you have submitted your application online, it will be shared between Almond Housing Association, Link Group, and West Lothian Council. More information on how we handle your data can be found in our Privacy Notice.

Any property offered will be on the basis of the information you put down on the form. However this does not guarantee that you will be allocated a property, as we have far more demand than available homes for let.

Vacant properties are allocated using a Group Quota system and on a points basis to make sure that those in the most housing need are given priority. This means that your Housing Application Form will be assessed and you will be awarded points based on your circumstances and needs.

Almond Housing Association has a stock of over 2500 properties in Craigshill, Eliburn, Howden and Ladywell, with limited stock in the Whitburn and Bathgate areas. To find out what type of housing we can provide in the areas you may be interested in, see our Breakdown of Stock.

Rents range from £275.35 to £639.97 per calendar month. More on rents here.
