Tenant Incentive Scheme

The Tenant Incentive Scheme is a voluntary scheme that offers support and financial assistance to tenants to encourage them to right-size or move to more suitable accommodation according to their needs. If you are downsizing or freeing up adapted properties you may be able to claim extra cash.  

You may want to move because:

  • your current home has become unaffordable, and you want to save money on household bills.
  • your children have left home, and you do not need the excess space or hassle of maintaining a bigger property.
  • your current home has become unsuitable, and you need to move into a property that gives you a better quality of life.
  • you want to move into retirement living.
  • your current home is too big and difficult to manage.
  • your current home has been adapted and your household no longer requires the adaptations.

To find out the criteria and whether you are eligible for this scheme please take a look at Bury Council's Tenant Incentive Scheme webpage. You can find out more about the scheme and, if after reading the information provided, you think you reach the criteria and are eligible for the scheme then you can complete the application form on the page.
