Mutual Exchanges – HomeSwapper

We are delighted to announce that we have now signed up with Homeswapper which is a mutual exchange scheme free of charge to all our tenants to help make it easier for you to move.

A mutual exchange is where you effectively ‘swap’ homes with another tenant, giving you control and increases your chances of finding a home of your choice.  The tenant you swap with can be from another housing association or local authority anywhere in the country.

Simply register online at . Once your property is registered you can browse the website to look at properties which may interest you and you can contact the person who is advertising their property to discuss if both parties are in interested in each others properties.

When you have found someone to exchange with, we must agree to this swap before you move. If the other tenant has a different landlord to you then both tenants need to complete mutual exchange application forms and the other landlord must also agree to the swap.

It could be just the thing to simplify your search for the perfect home – and it’s free!

The HomeSwapper Matches app brings together your matches and messages, meaning that you can contact potential swappers while on the go and is available from both the App Store and Google Play. So if you haven’t already started using the app, we recommend you download it now and start searching!
