Housing Options in Dundee - Hillcrest Housing Association

We are one of Scotland's largest regional Housing Associations, with over 40 years experience of managing and developing quality housing. Hillcrest Housing Association is the property asset owning parent company in the Hillcrest Group. We are a non-profit making organisation with charitable status and a registered social landlord. From our head office in Dundee and our locally based offices in Edinburgh, Arbroath, Crieff and Glenrothes we currently manage around 5,000 homes for rent and low cost home ownership.

We are now part of the Dundee Housing Register, in partnership with Dundee City Council. This means that applicants will not have to complete a Hillcrest application form, but will instead apply by completing a Dundee City Council Housing Application Form. Forms can be obtained from the Hillcrest Office at Shed 26, City Quay, Camperdown Road, Dundee, or from any of the local council offices.
