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.

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
