Transfer with Guinness

If you need a bigger or smaller home than you have at the moment, or want to move to a different area, you can apply to transfer to another Guinness home.

Applying for a transfer

In some areas, the council is responsible for all decisions about house allocations. So even though the home you want to move into is owned by Guinness, you may need to apply for it through your local council.

Our applications team can advise whether you need to apply for a transfer through your local council or through us.  You can call them on 0303 123 1890 (option 2) Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.

If our applications team confirm you can apply for a transfer through Guinness, you can complete your application over the phone or fill out an application form[pdf] and email it back to us at housingapplication@guinness.org.uk.
