Council Housing for the Armed Forces

Fife Council is committed to supporting veterans and to help them secure settled accommodation after being discharged from the Armed Forces.  The Council‘s Policy Advisory Group agreed to allocate 40 properties across Fife per year to HM Forces applicants.

Fife Council properties are allocated using a points system and if you are being discharged from the Armed Forces or can no longer stay in army accommodation you are entitled to 75 points.

You are entitled to keep these points until you have been: 

  • Allocated a property.
  • Secured your own settled accommodation.
  • Removed/withdrawn from the housing list.

This includes anyone who has been discharged for a number of years but who has not secured settled accommodation.

To apply for a house in Fife, you need to complete an application form which you can get by: 

  • Downloading the Application Form which is available within the publications section on this page.
  • Phoning the Housing Advice Line on 03451 55 00 33.
  • Writing to or visiting a local office.

To make sure you are awarded the 75 points please hand in your completed application form along with the Certificate of Cessation or your discharge papers to your nearest local office.  

When you apply to register for the housing list we will use the information you have provided to assess your housing need and determine your priority on the housing list.

If you have housing questions or problems, you can contact us online or call us using the housing advice number below.
