Home Choice Scheme

Is your home too big for you now?

If so we may be able to assist you in moving to a more suitable, manageable home.

The council has introduced a Home Choice Scheme which offers practical and financial help to Stevenage Borough Council tenants whose property is now too large for their needs and they want to downsize.
The Home Choice scheme is to help current tenants who want to move to a smaller home in an area that suits their current and future needs and to free-up larger properties for re-letting to families living in overcrowded conditions.

You may qualify if you are under occupying your Stevenage Borough Council home by at least one bedroom and you have been assessed as qualifying for the scheme by the under occupation advisor.

If you qualify for the scheme we will give £750 for each bedroom you give up. This money can be used towards decoration, carpets and white goods; we will also arrange and pay for your removals and disconnection/reconnection of your cooker and washing machine.
