With the Mayor of London’s Housing Moves scheme, a move to a new area may be closer than you think…


Do you need to move closer to work or college? Looking for a smaller home? Looking for a larger home? Want to be closer to family or friends, maybe to provide care or support?


If the answer to any of these question is ‘yes’, or if you have another reason for moving to a new area, then the housingmoves scheme could be just what you need.


Housing Moves is the Mayor of London’s scheme to helps social tenants in London to relocate to other parts of the capital. All council tenants and housing association tenants can apply, as long as they have a secure or assured tenancy. Priority is given to the following groups:


  • people who have more bedrooms than they need and wish to downsize
  • people in work or training
  • people who are overcrowded
  • people who want to move to give care.

Housing Moves is a choice based lettings scheme. This means that once tenants have registered, they can see details of all available properties on the housingmoves website and can express an interest in the ones that would suit them.


The Housing Moves scheme is separate from Family Mosaic’s Transfer list and CBL scheme. So, if you are interested you will need to apply direct to Housing Moves rather than through us. Your application form will be checked by Family Mosaic before you can express an interest in properties.  You must have a clear rent account in order to join the scheme. To find out more about the scheme, including how to apply, please go to the housingmoves website www.housingmoves.org


The Mayor of London also runs a scheme, called Seaside & Country Homes, to help tenants who are aged 60 and over to move to other parts of the country from London. You can find out how to access Seaside and Country Homes through the housingmoves website www.housingmoves.org

You will need your registration number (beginning with 6 or 60 and always containing 7 digits) and date of birth (or other memorable date if you have reset it) to bid. When we complete our assessment of your application, we will send you a letter containing all the information you need to take part.

Please remember that your bidding position is not confirmed until we check all the bids and confirm who are the highest ranked eligible and suitable bidders. We will only contact you if we are considering making you an offer. This may be several days after bidding closes, depending on when the property in question is due to become ready for letting.


We reserve the right to withdraw advertised properties from the scheme without notice at any time. However we will only do this in exceptional circumstances. This would include situations where we have previously offered the property to someone else and they have declined the offer then change their mind shortly after we have published the advert, or the property will not become empty as we expected, or there are special conditions applying to the way a property is let which become known after the advert is placed and prevent it from being offered to a Transfer or General List applicant. Where we do withdraw an advert, we will contact the top bidder to notify them.


Family Mosaic is now part of the Peabody Group


In mid-2017, Family Mosaic became part of the Peabody Group. Over the coming months we will be reviewing our Transfer policies and the ways we let our homes. We will be consulting residents about any significant changes. In the meantime Family Mosaic tenants can continue to bid for available homes using this website. We will advise tenants if there are any changes to this process. For more information call us on 0300 123 3456.
