Applying for a House
Maryhill Housing aims to provide quality, affordable housing in the Maryhill and Ruchill area to people who need somewhere to live. This could be because they have no home, or their current housing no longer suits their needs. Our allocation policy sets out how we match the people who apply for our homes when they become available. To do this we follow the rules and guidelines set out in our Allocation Policy to award priority to applications.
Maryhill Housing does not operate as part of any common housing register, and currently our waiting list is managed via a point-based housing system. Maryhill Housing only have stock in the Maryhill and Ruchill area. If you are looking for housing outwith these areas, please refer to the section below for more information. There are also links to other Housing Providers who may be able to assist you.
To apply for a house, you must complete a housing application form. Please complete this form fully, by answering all questions within the application. This will allow our Housing Management Team to point your application and ensure that this fully reflects your current housing circumstances.
Our Housing Application form is available online and can be downloaded here or you can collect from our office at 45 Garrioch Road.
Completed applications should be returned to our office at 45 Garrioch Road or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your application is received, we aim to load your application on to the waiting list within 5 working days. We aim to assess your application and provide you with your points award within 10 working days. Please note that this can be impacted by Public Holidays and office closures, and we appreciate your patience with this. Once your application has been assessed and pointed, we will send you a points notification letter which will breakdown the points that have been awarded to you. We are unable to place a timescale on when you will be rehoused.
