Information about how to apply for a mutual exchange
Exchange your home
If you're a housing association tenant, you can swap homes with any council or housing association tenant. This may be quicker than trying to secure a new home through our housing register.
Things to be aware of
Before considering a house swap, you must get your landlords consent.
The landlord will consider:
- the type of properties involved
- the household of each tenant
- how suitable the swap is
They'll also consider:
- how you've managed your tenancy including rent arrears
- how you look after your home
- any neighbour issues
How to find a house swap
You can find information to help you find a suitable swap on websites such as Home Swapper or House Exchange. Please contact your landlord to ask which site they use.
