    depends on council funds also its only 3 years since last, if new grant is for same type of work as its less than 5 might be a problem contact your council

    had a feeling 5 years could be involed, as i had to sign a contract to stay here for that amount of time. problem is if i rent it out the bungerlow for the time i fall short of rent here, Im allready been caught with bedroom tax as one bedroom was converted into a wetroom housing association wont down grade it to a 3 bed house.

    Would it be worth talking to the HA to see if you can do a deal. Somewhere in the back of my mind I remember people getting paid to move out of much needed properties.
