Do you wish to remain with this company and are you willing to relocate?
Your employer does not have to offer you any compensation or relocation package. As far as they are concerned if you refuse to move then you could just claim redundancy instead. However, you can of course give them the impression that you are keen to remain working for them and that you see the move as an exciting opportunity but for financial reasons would only be prepared if you were offered a relocation package. that could include contributions towards legal fees for moving, moving expenses, temporary accommodation, etc.
But if your employer has offered you a relocation package and you unreasonably refuse to relocate, then you may lose your entitlement to redundancy pay.
In general you need to find out if they are willing to offer you compensation to move and also whether there will be a trial period in your new place.
