Find out about about your housing options

If you are interested in a vacant property within one or more of these complexes, you should contact the landlord directly.

However, all customers who wish to apply for rented accommodation provided by Renfrewshire Council, are invited to discuss their housing options with a housing expert.

The discussion will include options that best suit each customer's housing need like:

  • council housing
  • other social housing providers
  • private landlords
  • owner occupation.

Prospective tenants are also given financial information and advice on other types of support available. If the best option is council housing, this will be done during the discussion which allows us to improve the way we match an applicant to a property.

Applicants for council housing will be assessed on the basis of housing need and placed into one of five groups, in accordance with our .

To make an appointment for a Housing Options interview, please contact one of our offices. See our contact details at the end of this page..
