Money for council tenants moving into a smaller property

We offer a financial incentive for council tenants moving into smaller accommodation. If you do downsize, you keep the same type of tenancy as you currently have.

The following groups are excluded:

  • succession cases
  • management transfer cases
  • left in occupation cases
  • downsizing through fixed term tenancy cases

How much do you get?

The amount we give depends on how many bedrooms you have downsized by.

  • £1,000 is offered for the first bedroom you give up, and £500 for every extra bedroom given up thereafter
  • Up to £500 is also given towards the cost of moving home
