Other housing options

Housing Moves is the Mayor of London's housing mobility scheme that allows tenants of London boroughs or housing associations to move outside their existing borough to a different part of London. It is run by the Greater London Authority and the majority of London boroughs and housing associations are participating.
You can use this website to register for Housing Moves and view the properties that are on offer. You can also find out more about how Housing Moves works by clicking on the links from this page.
Furthermore, the Mayor has secured some of the new social rented homes in the East Village development in Stratford for social tenants from across London. Properties on the site, which is currently the Olympic athletes' village, will be made available through Housing Moves shortly. For more information on these properties visit the East Village page
Seaside and Country Homes
What is Seaside & Country Homes all about? SCH is a housing mobility scheme that offers households living in Council or Housing Association housing in Greater London the opportunity to move home.
The scheme’s landlords manage approximately 3,500 bungalows and flats: along the southwest coast from Cornwall, through the countryside from Shropshire to Cambridgeshire, over to Norfolk and Lincolnshire in the east.
This scheme does not guarantee you a move and priority is given to tenants who are giving up larger sized properties. Those applicants who are offered viewings and want to move must sign tenancies with participating Housing Associations. In addition to maintaining the property in accordance with their tenancy agreement an applicant that accepts a property with a garden will also assume responsibility for maintaining the garden, as well as the upkeep of trees and other foliage within the grounds of the property. This should be given proper consideration when accepting an offer.
You can visit the Seaside and Country Homes website here.
