Apply for a transfer


If you are a social housing customer you can apply to transfer to another home if there has been a change in your situation.

There are three different types of transfer requests:

  • general transfers
  • priority transfers
  • management transfers.

A general transfer request can be made if your home is a bit overcrowded or too big for what you need.

A priority transfer request can be made if:

  • your family has broken down due to divorce or separation
  • your home is really overcrowded
  • someone in your house has developed a disability or serious medical condition
  • someone in your house is at risk or the victim of continued harassment.

You will need to include supporting evidence with any transfer applications – for more information speak to a member of the Hume staff or refer to our Transfers Policy

To apply for a general or priority transfer please complete the following forms:

Management transfers are recommended by Hume staff if:

  • there is a serious risk to the safety of someone in the household
  • the property is being sold or redeveloped
  • the property is under occupied
  • the head lease, the lease between the owner of the property and Hume, on the property has been ended
  • the property has had modifications made to it that aren't needed by the current tenant but there is a tenant who needs a modified property.
  • tenancy management issues.

Contact your Neighbourhood Officer or Housing Co-ordinator if you think you are eligible for a management transfer and they will arrange an assessment.
