The ballot has started and will close on 18 December. The choice 630 Roundshaw households face is as follows:

A yes vote will be to join Roundshaw Homes - the joint Housing Association partnership between Metropolitan and Hyde Homes that already owns the majority of Roundshaw. They are proposing to invest £15 million pouns over the next few years on local environmental and security Improvements as Roundshaw properties already meet Decent Homes standard.

A no vote will lead to them being part of Sutton Housing Partnership, the Council's ALMO.

At present I would expect a majority in favour of a yes vote, however some residents have circulated literature expressing concern over the transfer, which the Council have responded to so the result may be a bit closer than the earlier polling which predicted an 85% vote in favour.
