Your flat your home. Like any other secure tenant you must give 28 days notice to terminate your tenancy. There may be a good reason why you wish to move to another Council dwelling. If so the Housing Services Section will try to help you through its Transfer Register, or if it is to another Council area through the Homes Nomination Scheme. However, because of difficulties of availability a swift move may prove difficult.
If you are living as a couple and one of you dies, the surviving partner will not be required to move, even if your dwelling is designed for two people. However, if the surviving partner is below the required age or if the accommodation is specifically designed for a disabled person and the surviving partner does not need those facilities, the Council may offer suitable alternative accommodation.
