7. Moving to an adapted home

In some cases we can provide suitable properties to allow tenants to move as an alternative to providing major adaptations.

When we receive a request for a level access shower, stair lift or other major adaptation, our repairs and housing needs teams work closely together to see if a move to a suitable alternative adapted accommodation can be offered within a reasonable timescale.

If such a move can be considered tenants will be placed in the B band of Devon Home Choice to allow them to move as quickly as possible.  We may also do a direct match to a suitable empty property.

The alternative accommodation may require some further adaptations and we will work closely with other organisations to carry out this work.
