The transfer scheme supports BoP and PHP tenants who either find their current property too large to manage, or have been affected by a reduction in housing benefit due to under occupying the property.
The scheme also supports those who are over 60, currently living in a one bedroom general needs property and may be interested in moving to one of our sheltered housing schemes.
Gina Budden is our downsizing officer and will be happy to visit you in your home and talk you through the process.
Support is given for:
The Home Choice application
Monitoring the application and the bidding process
Planning the transfer
Once a property of your choice is allocated to you, Gina will:
Arrange the removal company (all removal costs will be paid)
Support you with informing the utility companies
Help with change of circumstances to housing benefits (if applicable)
You and Gina will plan your transfer together, ensuring the support given is tailored to your individual needs and the process goes ahead as smoothly as possible. You can contact Gina on 0800 652 3900.
