Choice based lettings is where vacant properties will be advertised and applicants of the Highland Housing Register will register an interest for that property. The property will then be allocated to the person who registered an interest and has the greatest need. The properties will be added to the list on a daily basis as and when they become vacant and you will have until 2pm on the 5th working day to register an interest. By changing how allocations are done it may mean those who may previously thought they couldn't be house will be.

You must have a Highland Housing Register Application and only register an interest in properties you wish to live in.
