Stock transfer


Stock transfer is where a council transfers the ownership and management of its homes (rented and leasehold) to a Registered Social Landlord.

The Welsh Government policy is to encourage councils to improve their housing stock to meet the Welsh Housing Quality Standard by whatever means they consider appropriate. The transfer of stock to a Registered Social Landlord (housing association) is one of the available options.
