Despite this, lump sum benefits are as popular as ever as companies increasingly rely on them to simplify their relocation programs and control costs.

Many companies ask how often they should be reviewing and/or benchmarking their relocation policies for potential needed changes. There is not a one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Many factors can come into play. For example, reviewing relocation policies on a yearly basis for a company that moves several hundred employees every year may be appropriate, while a yearly review would be excessive for a company that moves only a handful of employees each year.

Historically in corporate relocation, it has been common for a transferee to purchase a home in their destination location before their departure home has sold.  This was accomplished many years ago through corporate buyouts and lender leniency on inclusion of the old home payment in debt-to-income calculations. 

Those days have been gone for some time.  Many corporations have removed buyouts from policies and lender requirements have tightened significantly.
