Downsizing

If you are a Kirklees Council tenant or a Housing Association tenant in Kirklees and you have 2 or more spare bedrooms, you could benefit from the Homefit scheme, especially if you’re concerned about losing housing benefit because your house is 'under-occupied'. 

Moving to a smaller home is ideal if:

  • you're not using all your bedrooms
  • you're worried about your heating bills (smaller homes are cheaper to heat)
  • you're struggling to maintain your garden
  • mobility problems mean your home is no longer suitable for your needs
  • you need to be nearer to family, friends, shops, doctors

We can offer:

  • help and support from a dedicated officer
  • advice about moving to a home in an area you prefer
  • a smaller home that is easier and cheaper to manage
  • a higher level of priority for re-housing
