Apply for a home


If you are looking for a Council or Housing Association home in Edinburgh, you will need to fill out an EdIndex application form. EdIndex is a partnership between the Council and 20 Housing Associations in Edinburgh. You only need to complete one form.

You can download the EdIndex form below, print and post or you can contact the EdIndex Team and they will send you a form out.
0131 529 5080

You can also pick up a form at your Council neighbourhood office or from any of the EdIndex landlords.

Once we have your form we will send you a letter with your unique EdIndex reference number and we will tell you what to do next.
