Mid-market rental homes

A guide to our affordable Steadfast Homes properties, and what a tenancy involves.

What is Steadfast Homes?

Steadfast Homes is a joint venture between Stirling Council and Strevelin Homes Limited. It has a portfolio of high-quality accommodation, all let on a mid-market rental basis.

Stirling Council acts as the managing agent for all Steadfast Homes properties. 

Properties

Steadfast Homes' properties are in excellent condition and in popular locations. There are developments in:

  • McSherry Court, Cowie
  • King Street, Stirling
  • Station Square, Stirling
  • Citizen Jaffray Court, Cambusbarron
  • Glendevon Drive, Raploch
  • Maritime House, Stirling

Properties are mainly 1 and 2-bedroom flats. Most have floor coverings and blinds throughout. In addition, most properties are provided with white goods including washing machine/drier, cooker/hob and fridge/freezer. There's no extra rental charge for these goods.

Rent and Council Tax

Rents are competitive compared to private landlords. Rents vary depending on size and location. One-bedroom properties range from £365 to £380 per calendar month and two bedrooms range from £415 to £490 per calendar month.

We try to keep our rents in line with Local Housing Allowance rates. Council Tax payments are not included within the rent charge and should be paid separately.

How to apply

At present, there are no plans for any new Steadfast Homes properties. If an existing property becomes vacant, we'll offer it to someone on our waiting list. We do not advertise our properties.

Tenancy information

If you need a copy of the agreement in a different format or language, let us know.
