Transfer removal grant scheme

We provide a grant to tenants who are under occupying their property or are willing to move from a purpose built adapted property. We will find you a home that is more suited to your needs either in other council housing or with a housing association provider.

  • tenants of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 bedroom houses could qualify for a maximum grant of up to £2,000
  • any Council tenant who is presently under occupying their property could qualify for a maximum grant of up to £2,000

The amount payable will dependent upon the size of the property you currently live in and the type of property you move to.

The grant is paid by direct bank payment or rent card. Prior to the payment being approved, any debt owed to the Council will be deducted, for example:

  • rent arrears
  • court costs
  • re-charges for repairs that the tenant is responsible for
  • other Council debts
  • housing benefit overpayments

We send the tenant a letter confirming any deductions at the time payment is approved.
