Council tenants wanting to downsize

This page contains information on an incentive scheme that Oadby and Wigston Borough Council have available for council tenants.

Oadby and Wigston Borough Council offers eligible secure tenants a small financial incentive* to move from one of one of our family sized properties for which we have a high demand (currently 2,3 & 4 bedroom houses) to sheltered or supported flats and bungalows.

Why move and what are the benefits?

There are reasons and benefits to move to a smaller property including:

  • your circumstances may have changed from when you first moved into your current property,
  • you may wish to move to more suitable accommodation for your needs,
  • you could save money on heating and lighting bills,
  • you may save time and money on maintaining your garden,
  • you could reduce time and money spent on redecoration and re-carpeting and
  • accommodation on one level can easily be maintained.

Availability of this scheme is limited please contact your Housing Officer for details.

*the £1000 payment is made less any outstanding rent arrears, court costs, maintenance or damage recharges
