What can I do about anti-social behaviour?

How can I transfer to another property?

If you’d like transfer to another property, you should contact your Housing Officer or Housing Assistant. They’ll arrange an appointment for you to attend your local office to complete an application form.

When you’ve completed an application, a home visit appointment will be agreed to allow staff to carry out an inspection of your current property.

Please note that transfers are subject certain property condition standards. If the property doesn’t meet the standard expected, then transfers may be refused until the property is brought up to a suitable standard. This will be agreed at the property inspection visit.

Transfers may also be subject to clear rent accounts. So if you have rent arrears we can also refuse to consider your transfer until these have been cleared.
