Online Swap Shop

If you are an existing council or housing association tenant a Mutual Exchange may be an option for you.

Mutual Exchange is where you find another tenant who wants to swap homes, and agree to take over each other's tenancy in the condition that it is currently in. There are some conditions attached, for example you cannot move to a home that is far too big for you and if you have rent arrears that may well be a problem.

Any arrears on your account may reduce your chances of successfully swapping your home through Mutual Exchange. If your account is currently in arrears, contact our Central Income Team for advice on how to you can clear it.

However, it can be an ideal way to find a move, particularly if you are struggling to get a transfer or wish to move to a different area.

We are working with our tenants to create a Mutual Exchange Swap Shop database - a one-stop-shop of all our tenants looking to swap their homes through Mutual Exchange:
