Hello. I'm just asking some because my mum is 79 and is going through some health issues at the moment. We live about 30miles apart and I'm trying to find out whether or not a warden controlled council flat can be moved to another district or if we have to apply again. If this makes sense. This all very daunting.

    heya @ktask and welcome to the community. 

    I'm afraid I'm not great with the rules for housing, but I'll just pop your discussion in the housing category, so more people in the know will be able to see it and hopefully offer some top advice. I hope that's ok?

    I think the best place to ask is the council housing department of the district you want her to move to. They can advise you what kind of application process is needed and whether a transfer is possible.

    Hi
    Where I live your mum would have be on the council waiting list and qualify for a section 106 to move to another area.
    Your mum should qualify for that but the council would require evidence of her health issues and probably and occupational therapist assessment report.
    The best people to advise you on the required criteria are your local council.
