Derwent Living operates a transfer policy that enables existing customers to maximise their ‘mobility’ and access alternate accommodation that may be more suitable to personal housing need.
Derwent Living’s transfer policy gives consideration to housing demand and how the organisation can make best use of existing housing stock, by ensuring that tenants are housed in the most appropriate accommodation for their circumstances.
Provision has been made for residents that are deemed to be in urgent housing need. In situations such as these, residents are transferred to alternative accommodation as quickly as possible.
Each year, Derwent Living will allocate a minimum of 10% of all void properties to transfer applicants.
