Social Housing

We own over 2400 unfurnished properties in Leith and North Edinburgh with affordable rent rates for people in housing need. Anyone over the age of 16 is eligible to apply for a home with us.

We have many wheelchair accessible properties as well as three sheltered developments and amenity housing for people over the age of 65, with many linked to the community alarm service.

We participate in Edinburgh’s choice-based lettings scheme Key to Choice. All our available properties are advertised each week on the Key to Choice website, and in our office window.

To apply, you must complete the application form used by the council, and housing associations in Edinburgh called an “EdIndex” form. This is available from our office, council offices or can be downloaded at where more information on applying and bidding for housing is also available.

A tenancy agreement can provided on request, and this gives you some information on your rights and responsibilities as a Port of Leith Housing Association tenant. Our allocations policy can also be downloaded below.
