Looking for a home

Dunbritton was set up in 1992 with a clear purpose that was to tackle housing problems and to provide high standard rented housing. We also provide low cost housing for sale throughout the rural and urban areas of Dumbarton District for people in housing need and on low incomes. 

Over the years we have developed a comprehensive range of housing and related services that we currently deliver across both Argyll & Bute and West Dunbartonshire Council areas.  We have almost 800 properties for rent, including supported accommodation for people with special needs. 

We provide a factoring service to almost 400 share owners and private homeowners.

  • Cladding

    Grenfell Towers – Over cladding

     

    Following on from the recent tragic events at Grenfell Tower in London, I want to take this opportunity to reassure all of our tenants and factoring owners in terms of the safety of our properties; and to allay any concerns that you may have in relation to the type of cladding used on our properties.

    First and foremost, the system used in the Grenfell Towers multi-storey flat development is completely different to what we use to over clad any of our low-rise properties.

    Obviously there will be in-depth investigations in to the cause and contributory factors surrounding the unfortunate events at Grenfell. However the key point of my message is that none of our properties are affected by the type of cladding used at Grenfell Towers.

    Having said that, we are not complacent and take a proactive approach to our customers’ safety in everything that we do from the planning stage when we prepare the ‘Design Brief’ for our contractors, and throughout the lifespan of our properties in terms of reactive and planned maintenance programmes to ensure that we are compliant with all relevant building and health & safety legislation and ‘good practice’.

    Our investment programme, which is continuously reviewed and updated includes elements of work like replacing and updating smoke detectors, Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors; and statutory Gas and Electric checks on all of our properties as and when required.

    Clearly we can never claim to be 100% safe, but we are fully aware of our responsibilities as a landlord and I can confirm our ongoing commitment to ensure your safety as far as is reasonably practical in everything that we do.

    Chief Executive Officer
