Providing a single access point to social housing throughout the City

EdIndex is a partnership between the Council and 18 housing associations/co-operatives in Edinburgh. You only need to complete one application to apply for houses provided by the landlords.

17 landlords let their homes through Key to Choice.

Hanover Scotland Housing and Muirhouse Housing Association let their homes through a traditional points system and will contact you directly if a suitable home becomes available.

There is a high demand for social rented housing in Edinburgh so it can take a while to be housed through EdIndex. You can view details of where houses became available and the demand for them using the supply and demand tool. You can also check out the other affordable housing options in Edinburgh.
