Welcome to Homehunt Gigha

 

We all need homes that are comfortable, affordable and appropriate to our needs. To this end, The Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust is striving to improve all Trust owned housing and to ensure that there are opportunities for households to build their own homes, should they so wish. As the demand for Trust rented housing will always exceed supply, it is essential that we have a fair, transparent and easily understood system of allocating houses.

  

Homehunt Gigha provides just such a system. It is simple and effective, yet easy to understand. There are no waiting lists and no points and you only apply for the house that you want. All vacancies are advertised and the criteria by which houses are allocated have been democratically agreed by the Trust's membership.

 

The Homehunt leaflet explains how Homehunt Gigha works and advises how you can apply for a Trust house, whether you are an existing or prospective tenant.

 

There is also rented accommodation on the island, let by Fyne Homes Housing Association. You can contact them directly on 0845 6077117.

Good luck in your search for a new home. Sonas is adh ag amharc air son bhur dachaidh ur.

Homehunt Gigha is managed by the Housing Allocation Group( independently from homehunt ®), which consists of Isle of Gigha residents. All applications are based solely on the information provided and not based on any local knowledge. Any Housing Allocation Group members with a known conflict of interest eg related to an applicant will not be present during the award of Priority Passes or housing allocations. All information is held in the strictest of confidence within the Housing Allocation Group. A note will be kept of those present at each meeting and a summary of the decisions made.

 

 

Registering

 

You need to register with us before you can apply for a house. Registration is a quick and easy process. We need your name, address and date of birth, the names and dates of birth of everyone who will move with you, and we ask you to sign a few simple statements to confirm that you are eligible for housing under our scheme.

 

Registration can be completed whilst you wait at the Trust's Office (or you can apply by post or by telephone, although these methods will take longer as we will post out a short form for you to sign and return).

 

The registration form is downloadable here

 

 

Applying for Houses

 

Once registered, you can apply for any property that is advertised as long as the property is suitable e.g. it would not result in overcrowding. Properties will be advertised on the notice boards at the Trust Office and Gigha Stores and also online at www.gigha.org.uk for a period of 28 days.

 

When you see a property you are interested in, you should apply for it using the Application for Property Form (details of this will be given on the advert), and giving us your registration number and the property's address, but you must do this before the closing date and time specified in the advert.

 

You can apply for as many available properties as you wish, at any one time. However, if you qualify, for more than one offer at the same time, we will assume that the property you apply for first is your first choice, and so on, in the order you chose to apply. If you qualify for an offer on one house, we will disregard any later applications you have made, so the order in which you apply could be very important to you.

 

Similarly, if there is nothing you like available, or perhaps it is not a convenient time to move, there is no need to apply. If you haven't applied for a property for a year, we will write to you annually and check that you still want to remain registered with us.
