Are you aged 60 plus and thinking about moving to a smaller home?
There are lots of benefits of moving to a smaller property, including lower heat and utility bills and living in a home that is accessible and suitable for your needs as you get older. We have a dedicated Under-Occupancy team who can support you through the whole process.
The team can help by:
- meeting with you to give advice on all the different housing options
- assisting you with the completion of relevant applications
- referring you to other services if required
- identifying suitable properties on your behalf
- accompanying you to viewings
- arranging a survey for removals and a quote for carpets
- processing the Tenants Option Fund
The Tenant’s Option Fund offers a lump sum to council tenants who downsize and the money can be used however you would like.
