Wishaw and District Housing Association is a non-profit making registered social landlord operating within defined boundaries in Wishaw and surrounding areas.
We were established in 1978 to improve local housing provision, initially through the rehabilitation of turn of the century tenement flats that had structural problems and were lacking in amenities. Once this objective was successfully completed we turned our attention to building new housing, which we have being doing now since 1990.
Although our primary aim is to provide high quality, affordable homes for rent, we have provided a number of properties for Shared Ownership and we also act as property managers for homeowners and sharing owners in areas where we have an interest.
The day-to-day operations of the Association are paid for from the income the Association receives from rents, shared ownership occupancy charges and management fees. The building of new developments are funded in part from private mortgages (which are repaid from the Association‘s rental income) and partly by government grants.
