There may be a time when the property you are living in is no longer suitable for you and/or your family and a more urgent move is required.

In certain circumstances we are able to assess your living situation and award a priority banding to your transfer application.

Further information is available for the following assessments via our frequently asked questions:

Medical (the property is affecting physical and/or mental health)

Welfare (ground of hardship or safety at risk)

Overcrowding (the property doesn't have enough bedrooms)

Under-occupancy (the property is to big)

For more information about renting a council property, property criteria and the band you are likely to be placed in, please see the Two Minute Guide or you can read the full Housing Allocation Policy.
