Fife had a higher proportion than any other LA with an outcome of LA/RSL tenancy, 32% of outcomes compared to 4% across Scotland.

Note that while 4% had an LA tenancy as the outcome of their housing options approach, many of those who went on to make a homeless application will also go on to a local authority or registered social landlord tenancy.

Across Scotland, it took an average of 105 days to reach a final outcome on a housing option approach. This varied by local authority with North Lanarkshire taking 607 days on average to East Dunbartonshire taking 15 days on average.
