Housing groups

Once assessed, applications will be placed in the relevant group most applicable to their circumstances. Homes4D&G has three housing groups – Homeless, Transfer and Waiting list – from which we allocate our properties.

Homeless applicants

If the council finds that you are ‘unintentionally homeless’ it means you are homeless through no fault of your own and, because of your circumstances, you will be offered accommodation by one of the Homes4D&G partners. If this is the case, your application will be placed in this group and we prioritise your application, based on the date which you applied for a homelessness assessment.

Transfer applicants

Transfer applicants are existing tenants of any of our partner landlords living in Dumfries and Galloway.

Waiting list applicants

Waiting list applicants are those who do not qualify in any of the other housing groups and who want to move into the social housing sector. This group also includes applicants who are existing tenants of any of our partners, living out-with Dumfries and Galloway.

Transfer and waiting list applications will be held in order of the number of points awarded under the Homes4D&G points system. If applicants share the same number of points, they will be prioritised based on date of application. This means that if two applicants have the same number of points, the applicant who registered first will be given greater priority, if a suitable property becomes available. For full details of our points system click here.

We understand that our allocations policy can’t cover all the circumstances that may lead to you wanting or needing to move home. Where our policy does not cover these, our partner landlords and/or the Homes4D&G team will be responsible for identifying individual cases; the Homes4D&G team will be responsible for approving these cases. These type of applications will be held in date order, by the date the decision was made to award this priority.
