Mutual Exchange

Would you like to move? Consider a mutual exchange

If you are thinking of moving to another area, or want a larger/smaller property, a mutual exchange could be for you.

What is a mutual exchange?

A mutual exchange enables you to move, by swapping your property with another social housing tenant through an 'assignment of tenancy'. This enables you to swap properties without the need to go through the usual housing waiting list or lettings systems.  You can move within the district or elsewhere in the country and it may be possible to arrange a multiple-swap with up to four other tenants.

An exchange will be considered subject to all tenants involved in the exchange holding a Secure or Assured tenancy.  Please note if you hold a Starter Tenancy, you are unable to exchange until you have completed your probationary period of one year.
