We have over 1700 homes in Berwickshire and in Berwick-upon-Tweed in a variety of sizes and locations – from single’s flats and family homes to bungalows adapted for disabled people and sheltered housing for older people. We keep investing in our homes to keep them in good condition and when we can, we build new homes in Berwickshire communities, creating more choices and more locations.
Apply for a Home
Choosing a home is an important decision and at Berwickshire Housing Association we want to make it as easy as we can for you. Just follow these 3 easy steps :
1. Register with us
Fill in a registration form which is available from any of our local housing offices or, you can enter your details on the Homehunt website at www.homehunt.info
2. Choose from any home and location advertised. Details of all our available homes appear:
- In The Berwickshire News and Berwick Advertiser
- On display in our Housing Offices in Duns and Eyemouth
- On the Homehunt website
- Call Freephone 0800 587 4868 and listen to recorded information about our available homes
3. Tell us
- Apply for it by telling us your registration number and the property’s address, you can do so in person at any of our local offices, by phone, by post, or online
- Make sure you apply before the closing date and time specified in the advert
Points to remember
- Choose a property that is suitable to your needs – a family of six in a single flat or a young mum in sheltered housing would not be suitable
- While you can apply for as many advertised homes as you want at the same time, we will assume the first choice you make is your preference. So put your top choice first and so on
