Housing Options Scotland - Military Matters  

Military Matters is a specialist project within Housing Options Scotland providing an independent housing advice service to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families.  We offer clients a tailored individual service to review and consider their housing options whether they are already resident in Scotland or are considering living in Scotland in the future. 

 

Finding the right home in the right place can be a confusing and stressful experience at any time. It can seem harder when you’re planning to leave the armed forces and facing the uncertainty of transition to civilian life.  Having talked to recent service leavers and their families, Housing Options Scotland have pulled together this information for those who may be thinking of leaving the Armed Forces. We also believe it has relevance to serving personnel and their families too, whatever the stage of your career.  If you are thinking of either buying or renting your first home or if you are confused by the number of incentive schemes to help get on the housing ladder, the booklet contains a lot of useful information.
