Golden goodbye scheme

Once you've moved out, we do all the relevant checks and will write to you at your forwarding address to let you know that you're eligible - you don't need to do anything.

If you have moved to another Derby Homes property, the payment will be credited to your rent account. If you are no longer a tenant with Derby Homes we will issue a cheque, which may take up to 8 weeks to be issued.

If you meet all of the criteria, but have outstanding debts, the payment will be refused. No part payments will be made and the Golden Goodbye payment may not be used to offset or reduce any monies owed.

If you meet all other criteria and agree to clear all outstanding debts in full (rent arrears, recharges or court costs, for example), the Golden Goodbye payment may be issued.
