Secure tenants will not be worse off in terms of the number of bedrooms in your current home, whether you choose to move into a new home on the rebuilt estate or take ‘Band A’ status and move into another council or housing association home of your choice in Lambeth. Tenants who are under-occupying by two rooms or more will be required to downsize.
Tenants with adult children living at home will be able to keep the same number of bedrooms as they currently have, unless this leaves them under-occupying, in which case they will be offered a new home with one bedroom above their need (Lambeth Housing Allocation Scheme 2013). For instance, a single person with an adult child living in a 3-bed can move to another 3-bed, but a single person with adult child living in a 4-bed would have to move to a 3-bed.
Homeowners choosing to move into a new home on the estate would not be worse off in terms of the number of bedrooms in their current home, unless they choose to downsize.
