Apply to join the housing transfer list

Join the housing transfer list if you’re an existing council tenant and want to move to a different property.

Who can use this service?

This form is for Lambeth Housing tenants only. If you're a housing association tenant or you rent privately, you need to apply to join the housing register.

Lambeth Housing tenants

Both secure and introductory Lambeth Housing tenants can use this form to join the housing transfer list.

If you’re a secure tenant, you can apply to exchange or swap your home with someone else. It may be quicker than applying for a transfer.
