Transfers and exchanges

We are moving to our new system 'Home-Options' for managing our council housing applications.

If you are already registered for housing with us, please continue to bid for available properties at www.onthemove-cbc.org.uk until we tell you to use the Home-Options website. This is because we will need to run both systems for a short time to allow applicants time to register on the new system. 

Please make sure you have reregistered on our Home-Options system so that you are still on our records and are able to bid on properties in the future.

Find out more here.


Please note, some of this information will normally only apply to secure council tenants. Introductory tenants do not have the right to a transfer or mutual exchange.

There are several reasons why you may wish to move:

  • You may want to move home because your present house or flat is too big, or too small.
  • You may have a medical need for wanting to move to another type of property.
  • You may be changing jobs, or want to live nearer to your family.

There are several ways you may be able to get a move:
