There are a few reasons why people have different sized homes. 

Reasons can include:

  • they have lived there for a long time and their children don't live at home anymore
  • they need someone to come in and care for them a few nights a week
  • health reasons mean they need separate rooms or they need an extra room to store medical equipment. 

Hume assesses how many people live in a home and we will look at moving people to a smaller home if they don't need the extra bedrooms.

 You are assessed on your family needs and we will let you know what type of property you are eligible for under the rules.
