Downsize and get £2,000!
Across the UK a number of councils are now offering these kinds of cash (in your pocket) incentives for tenants who really don’t need that extra bedroom, to downsize.
If you live in Exeter right now then Exeter council house tenants are being offered cash incentives for moving to properties with fewer bedrooms than the property they currently occupy.
The council is looking to free up some of the city's family accommodation and enable families on the housing register to move into properties that meet their requirements. So, they are looking to introduce an incentive scheme.
Already across the UK a number of councils are now offering these kinds of cash (in your pocket) incentives for tenants who really don’t need that extra bedroom, to downsize.
The original scheme was so popular in Exeter, that the incentive had to be suspended, however, larger family homes were still required and a revised policy needed to be put in place offering tenants a reduced payment.
The incentive payments are only made to tenants moving between city council properties.
So, if you live in Exeter and you Really don’t need all that space, why not downsize and gain £2,000 for your trouble?
Seems a good deal to us.
