A new website to help people searching for social housing in Fife is being launched this month by Fife Housing Register partners.

 

The site will make it easier for people to find out about the housing options available to them in Fife as well as give some advice to those in different housing situations such as:

  • Preparing for a new home
  • what you can do if you have too many or too few bedrooms
  • dealing with rent arrears
  • leaving armed forces
  • if you were not born in the the UK

 

The web site also allows you to:

  • complete a housing options assessment to see what housing options suit your needs
  • to apply to the Fife Housing Register for housing
  • access other information on-line that could be relevant

 

Cllr Judy Hamilton, Convenor of Housing and Communities Committee said:“This is an important step forward in providing a better service for people looking for Council or Housing Association housing in Fife - and making it more accessible is going to give people the opportunity to try and find a home that is right for them.  All of our teams have been working on this system for a few weeks and I’m delighted that we’re able to launch this new way of working, which helps tenants to know all of their Housing options across all the Fife Housing Register partners”.

 

Andrew Saunders, CEO of Ore Valley Housing Association and Chair of the FHR Executive is enthusiastic about the new service and commented - ‘The completion of this web-site, designed to make it much easier for people to find out more about their housing options in Fife, is a fantastic example of what can be achieved when partners work together to achieve a common goal. We hope that the new website will become the place to go for information and support for everyone with an interest in housing in Fife.’
