There are a small number of reasons why you may be able to move to another SNG property through SNG Home Transfer if you already have a tenancy with us. This is different to mutual exchange, where you swap homes with someone else.

SNG runs a very small waiting list for customers with a high priority need to move. If you consider you meet the criteria in our banding criteria Opens in new window, you should contact your Locality Officer.

They will discuss your circumstances with you and ask you to provide any supporting information and/or details of support agencies you may be working with. The Officer will complete an assessment which will be discussed at Panel before a decision is reached.

If it’s agreed that you meet the criteria then we will set you up to register on SNG Home Transfer via a link sent to your email address and you'll be given a priority banding. From here you can bid on properties when they're advertised.

Please note, we only advertise a small percentage of our homes on SNG Home Transfer and not in all areas. In most cases, those in the highest priority banding will be the successful bidder, so please do also look at the other ways Opens in new window you could try to move home.

Please note, SNG Home Transfer is powered by Locata Housing Services. Locata is our data processor and will follow full instructions from SNG, as we are the data controller.
