My Housing Options
There are many different ways to access housing. These pages contain information about the different types of housing that are available to rent and buy in Scotland.
- Local authority housing
- Housing association or Co-operative housing
- Renting privately
- Home ownership
- Mid-market rent
- Low-cost home ownership
- Help for first-time buyers
To find out more about any of these options or have a more detailed discussion about the right type of home for you, you should contact your local council.
Links to all council websites can be found on the Scottish Government website.
If you are having problems with your current home or you think you might be at risk of homelessness, you should contact your local council as soon as possible or seek advice from an independent organisation such as Shelter Scotland.
