Affordable housing: types of tenure

Affordable housing takes several forms:

Social renting

This could be either from us or a housing association. You will have a Scottish Secure Tenancy which will give you certain rights as a tenant.

Mid market renting

A short assured tenancy provided by a housing association or subsidiary. This is cheaper than renting privately but you may have to meet certain conditions to be able to apply.

Low cost home ownership

This includes shared equity, shared ownership or discounted sale schemes. Again, you may have to meet certain conditions to be able to apply.
