We are currently working in partnership with Atrium Homes, Cunninghame Housing Association, Riverside Scotland and Shire Housing Association within a Common Housing Register (CHR) for East Ayrshire. We launched the new register in April 2012.

The Single East Ayrshire Register for Community Housing - or SEARCH, as it is known - utilises a single application form to make it easier for applicants to apply for social rented housing within East Ayrshire and to extend greater choice for people seeking housing.

An information booklet is available and clearly sets out what size of house you are eligible for, how we will assess your application and explains how we calculate the points you may be awarded.
