Housing Options

The North Ayrshire Housing register landlords have launched a Housing Options advice scheme on their website. This is easy to follow and will advise you on what housing options are available to you.

You can complete a housing option assessment at

Direct Debit

Direct Debit is the easiest way to pay your rent. To set up your direct debit, telephone our Direct Debit hotline on 01294 324603 (please have your bank details handy when you call to set up a Direct Debit) or complete the Direct Debit mandate (PDF, 33kb) and return it to us.

Welfare Reform

The Welfare Reform Advice Team is a specialist team set up to assist tenants on any aspect of the welfare reform changes, including helping you to apply for a discretionary housing payment to assist with your under occupancy charge. You can contact them by phoning: 0300 999 4606 or emailing

Tenant participation

Whether it’s attending meetings, coming along to a conference or fun day, completing online surveys or engaging with us through social media, we have many different ways in which you can get involved with your housing service. This is your chance to take part, have your say and be heard.

Find out how to get involved.
