Finding a smaller home

Moving somewhere smaller can be cheaper which may leave you financially better off.
This leaflet provides more information about moving to a smaller home.

Below are some additional benefits of moving to smaller property:

  • a smaller home could be more manageable
  • lower running costs
  • Help with the removal costs - council tenants only
  • High priority on Locata
  • Personal service (including assisted bidding and accompanied viewing)

Some housing associations may also pay incentives, but not all. To be eligible for the incentive you must meet certain rules, and rules for mutual exchanges vary.  A housing officer can advise you on the process of ending your tenancy.
