Exchanging your home

Do you already have a home that you rent from us or another housing association but wish to move? Are you no longer on a starter tenancy? If so you might be able to arrange a (mutual) exchange with another tenant who's also looking for a different home.

We currently recommend a service called swapandmove, a national website, which matches your needs with others to make sure it's the perfect exchange. 

There are certain conditions which might prevent you from exchanging a property such as if you are in rent arrears. Here's the full criteria:

  • You must be an assured tenant
  • You must satisfy a pre-leaving inspection
  • You must have a clear rent account
  • You must have no tenancy breaches
  • The property must be the right size and needs for your household

The best thing is to sign up and we will then let you know if you can take part or not. Please note, if you were previously registered with homeswapper, you will need to register with swap and move first.

You can also check out the swapandmove website for more details which explains helpful tips for the whole process.
