Applying for a Home

Dunbritton Housing Association are a partner of the Home Argyll Common Housing Register. Please see additional information on Home Argyll below.

As part of the Common Housing Register if you are applying for housing in Argyll and Bute you only need to fill in one application form, on line, to be considered for housing with a number of different landlords.

In West Dunbartonshire your application will be considered only by Dunbritton for our properties in the West Dunbartonshire area.

Our housing application form is completed on line – when applying for a house you should log into www.homeargyll.co.ukand click “apply online” on the top right hand side of the page.

Guidance can be found at P:\DunbrittonHA\Departments\Customer Services\Customer services Team\Abritas\procedures and guides\Application guidance.pdf.

We know not everyone has access to the internet. There are a number of different ways you can go on line if you do not have internet access at home. You can apply for housing via your smart phone, and your local library offers internet access which can be pre booked to allow you to complete your form on line.

For those customers who require help to navigate the internet, we can help. Please contact our Customer Services Team on 01389 761486. We can arrange an office appointment for help with completing your form.

To complete the form you will be required to provide information and documentation, relating to your housing history, proof of identity and residence. We will advise you what to bring when you phone to make an appointment.

If your current housing circumstances are affecting your health, you should complete the “Health and Housing Need” section of the on-line application to allow consideration of your health needs in your priority for housing.

About Home Argyll

HOME Argyll is a common housing register, established in 2006. We operate this register in partnership with; Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA), Fyne Homes, and West Highland Housing Association. All Home Argyll partners operate the same Allocations Policy, which gives priority to those applications in the greatest housing need.

At Dunbritton we are committed to helping reduce homelessness in the communities where we have housing.

As part of our statutory responsibility to work with the local authorities of West Dunbartonshire and Argyll and Bute, we offer 50% of any houses that become available for let each year to the local authority.

This means that those households with the greatest housing need are given priority to be housed.
