If you currently live in a council or housing association home, you can apply to move to a smaller home using the Moving with Dacorum website. Because you are considered to have a ‘spare’ bedroom, you will receive extra priority or points to help you move.
We only have a limited number of homes that become empty every year (around 500 general needs properties) and very high demand for them. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that you will move quickly if you have a ‘spare’ bedroom.
You can also swap your home with another local authority or housing association tenant. This is known as a mutual exchange. For more information and to apply, go to our mutual exchange page.
There are some restrictions on the size of the property you can exchange into and conditions around rent arrears, anti-social behaviour and alterations which may restrict your ability to move.
