Applying for a house


What is the Glasgow Housing Register Northwest?

Glasgow Housing Register (GHR) is a Common Housing Register used to maintain the housing lists for social rented housing in the Northwest of Glasgow. 

The Glasgow Housing Register (GHR) has been developed in partnership with the Registered Social Landlords (Housing Associations and Co-Operatives) who have houses to let in the Northwest of Glasgow. 

The GHR has been created to allow applicants looking for Social Housing to complete one application form to apply to any or all of the 13 participating Housing Associations and Cooperatives, known as Partners:  The easiest way to apply to any of the GHR Partners is to use the Online Form at www.glasgowhousingregister.org Please note that a valid email account is required.  

Which area, size and type of house can you apply for?

You can apply to be housed in any of our 2 areas (Woodlands & Garnethill)

We allocate house sizes according to the number of people in your household (all of the people moving with you).  The choice of our properties is limited to flats as we do not own any houses.

The higher the demand for a house (usually determined by the size and floor height of a property), the longer you will have to wait before you will be offered suitable housing.

What happens next?

When we receive your GHR application, we will:

  • Assess and point your application in line with our Allocations Policy
  • Request a tenancy reference from your current landlord if applicable
  • Write to you with information on your points level and your position on our housing list

The points system operated by the Association is designed to allocate houses on the basis of the greatest housing need. Points are awarded under various categories with the aggregate total defining the applicant’s position on the list. Separate lists are maintained for different sizes of property as well as sheltered housing and applicants with special needs. 

What types of issues can you get points for?

  • Health / Medical needs
  • Overcrowding
  • Under occupation
  • Living in unsatisfactory housing conditions
  • Sharing/Lacking Amenities
  • Insecurity of tenure
  • Social/community/family support
  • Harassment
  • Special Circumstances

Annual re-registration

We will contact you in writing each year on the anniversary of the date you originally applied to us - to check that you still wish to be housed. 

The letters we send you will ask that you submit a new application to the Glasgow Housing Register Northwest (GHR) should you still wish to be housed by Charing Cross Housing Association.  If you need our assistance to complete this process please feel free to contact us and we will provide you with the help you need.
