Why not just wait for a Social Housing tenancy
Social Housing is in great demand and often people can wait a long time before being offered a Council property. Housing options are the alternatives to Social Housing which may make it easier and quicker for you to move house.
What housing options are available?
There are many different options available but they are not suitable for everyone. Using this wizard you will be able to see which options are suitable for you.
Some of the available options include:
- Shared ownership
- Mutual Exchange
- Social Housing
- Mortgage rescue
- Sheltered housing
- Private rented housing
On average it takes between 10 to 15 minutes to enter your personal information. You may then want to take time to read through your options, but remember you can come back to your case anytime by using the unique reference number the system will provide. You can also print out your action plan for future reference.
Please note that completing this self assessment does not mean that you have applied for housing with West Lothian Council. Instructions on how to do this are provided in the Social Housing information page and in your Action Plan.
