Angus Housing accepts applications from anyone aged 16 and over. The association aims to provide well managed and maintained affordable rented housing and to allocate the properties to people who have genuine unmet housing need.
Your housing need is determined by a banding system as this provides a fair way to assess the degree of individual needs of applicants.
