Repairs to empty council homes

Tidy clearance scheme

If you leave your home clean and clear when you move out, you may be eligible for a £100 tidy clearance bonus.


In order to claim the incentive, there are some important things you must do:

  • give your housing officer four weeks' written notice to end your tenancy
  • make a claim to the voids team within four weeks of your notice to quit expiring
  • leave your property (including loft space, sheds, outside buildings, garages and gardens) clear of all rubbish, floor coverings, furniture and any other unwanted possessions
  • ensure your property is left in a good condition and in a fit state of repair
  • clear any rent arrears
