Relocation, Relocation is a Channel 4 property show based on the same format as its parent show. Each week a couple look to buy a house, usually outside large urban areas, and also invest in a house or shop in the city, with the help of Kirstie and Phil. The series usually airs in the winter months, so as not to coincide with Location, Location, Location.
