Housing Association Tenants
If you are then assessed as being overcrowded you will qualify for a larger property. How long it will take to be offered a larger home would be dependent on the size of your household, your areas of choice and the availability of larger properties.
You may also wish to consider applying for a mutual exchange.
If you are a private tenant and are overcrowded you can consider:
- Finding a larger, affordable, private rented property,
- Applying for a housing association property.
If you are very overcrowded it may be unreasonable for you to continue to live in your home. In this case you can make a homeless application to Argyll & Bute Council.
You may also be eligible for the Argyll & Bute Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme if you are looking for a tenancy in the private rented sector.
