We may be able to consider you for a larger property than your identified housing need, pending the receipt of an affordability check. If you would like to be considered for a larger property, please request an income and expenditure form. We will not consider applicants who have rent arrears or are only in receipt of universal credit for a larger property, as this would not be deemed affordable.
Please be aware, if your application is amended to include larger properties, a property with the number of bedrooms to meet your housing need would still be classed as a reasonable offer. You would only be considered for a larger property once the list of applicants with a housing need for a larger property has been exhausted.
In cases where shared custody/access has been agreed for children, if a parent is not in receipt of Child Benefit, the child/children will not be included as part of the application.
