These Homes

We are excited to announce that we are working in partnership with another fifteen landlords from across Scotland to deliver a new Digital Lettings Service – These Homes. These Homes is a choice based lettings system that allows applicants to register their interest in specific properties. These Homes will replace our existing allocations system, although we will also continue to take nominations for vacancies from the following local authorities;

  • Aberdeen City Council
  • Aberdeenshire Council
  • Moray Council

If you wish to pursue alternative housing, we are asking that you complete an application through If you are already registered with These Homes then you will need to update your application, selecting Osprey as a landlord with which you would like to be considered.

Our internal transfer register will cease to exist after 1st July 2022 and the only way that we can consider you for housing is if you are registered through These Homes.

What Happens Next

Once you have registered with These Homes, we will contact you to confirm your application and to ask for any further information if needed.  We would normally try do this within a couple of days but we are expecting over 4,000 applicants to register around the same time so it may take us a little longer – please bear with us.
