Making a housing application to the Gannochy Trust.
The Trust’s aim is to provide affordable, high quality, energy efficient housing of character, vision and design in an attractive physical environment. To apply for one of the houses, prospective tenants must complete an application form which will only be available on this page when the housing list is open.
Please note that due to high demand for our houses, coupled with low turnover, the Trust opens the housing list for applications only when the current waiting list is almost exhausted. This means that, on average, the housing list is only open once in two years and usually for a very short period of time – normally two to three weeks. Even then, we receive far more applications than there are houses available. When the list is open, we will announce it on this page, along with the deadlines for applications.
In return for a sought-after home, in an attractive environment at affordable rents, the Trust expects tenants to
- Be good and supportive neighbours
- Keep the interior of their home in a good state of decoration and repair
- Maintain the gardens to a high standard
- Take communal responsibilities seriously
- Be responsible for the behaviour of everyone (including children) living in or visiting their home, garden or surrounding area
- Be responsible for pets including cleaning up after any dogs, particularly in gardens and public areas.
Please check if you are eligible to apply for a property before starting the application process. If you meet these criteria, then we would welcome your application.
- You are a resident within Perth and Kinross;
- You can demonstrate a genuine need to move from your present home;
- At least one of the applicants is in employment or retired;
- The property will be your only residence;
- You can maintain a Gannochy home and garden to a satisfactory level;
- You have been or will be a good neighbour;
- You are financially stable and have the ability to sustain the rental payments.
