Looking to transfer homes

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. Get in touch with our teams to find out how.

Applications Advice Team

If you are a current tenant with The Guinness Partnership and are looking to transfer to a new home, you can see what is being advertised through your MyGuinness account and by selecting the YourChoice option.  We update this website at 10am every Tuesday and Friday.

In the majority of transfer cases, customers must have a clear rent account and must pay two weeks’ rent in advance on their new home before they move. Only in exceptional circumstances would we allow a customer to transfer to another Guinness home if there are arrears on their rent account.

If you have any questions about transfers or YourChoice you can speak to a member of our applications team on 0161 219 7229.

If you are a Manchester Move applicant whose application has been allocated to The Guinness Partnership, please contact the lettings team on 0161 219 9850.

If you’re not currently a Guinness tenant and you’re not enquiring about a Manchester Move application, but you’re interested in applying for a home with Guinness, you need to register directly with the local authority or check out our available now homes on Zoopla.
