What happens once I have submitted my housing application form?

We will assess your level of need for new housing and decide how many points you have. We will then write to you letting you know.

Do I have a choice of area?

There is no limit to the number of areas an applicant can ask to be considered for housing in. 

Will I get medical points priority?

If you complete a Medical Priority Form, it will be assessed by an independent medical specialist, who will decide whether or not you are entitled to extra medical points. There are two medical priority forms. Medical Form 1 is for your housing details and Medical Form 2 is for the medical condition of the applicant. Help is available in the Application for Medical Priority Guidance.

Please note that Medical points are given on the assessment of how there current housing situation is affecting their medical condition.

What sort of things can I get extra housing points for?

You can get extra housing points for such things as medical reasons, under occupancy or overcrowding. Contact  Allocations for more information Tele:01786 237670.

Can I state a preference for a particular house?

Unless you are at the top of the waiting list, we won't be able to offer you the house.

How can I move to another Council House?

If you want to move to another council house, you can apply for a mutual exchange, where you swap properties with someone else, or you can re-apply for the housing waiting list. If you wish to apply for a mutual exchange please contact Allocation 01786 237670.

We have joined Homeswapper, which is a mutual exchange matching website. Stirling Council tenants can now register with Homeswapper free of charge and get information about tenants in the Stirling area who want to swap houses as well as details of people wanting to move here from outside the area. Please note that written permission is required prior to an exchange taking place.
