Too Many Bedrooms

Priority or preference is given social housing tenants who are under-occupying.

Under-occupying your home means you have more bedrooms than you need and we will use the information you give us to calculate if you are entitled to under-occupation points.

If you are already a tenant of one of the Fife Housing Register Partners and you think you home is too big for your needs you should contact your landlord and let them know. They may be able to help you to find a move to a smaller property that is more suitable for your needs.

You should also register with Homeswap as there could be someone in your area who is looking for a larger property (just like yours).

Renting in the Private Sector could also be a housing option that suits your needs. Fife Private Rental Solutions (FPRS) can provide advice and assistance to anyone interested in the private rented sector. The team can offer guidance on what renting in the private rented sector entails; how to search for an appropriate property; benefit entitlements; assistance with a Deposit Guarantee and much more. For more information, please contact the FPRS team on 01592 201849, email or visit their website
