Welcome to our website.
We provide high-quality housing for tenants throughout Shetland.

You can find out about your housing options and, if you want to apply for a Hjaltland house, we explain how to go about it.
You can also find other kinds of information and advice here. For example, we outline our repair procedures, offer tips on saving energy and discuss the need for insurance. There are links to other useful sites, too.
