Tenants are able to exchange their home with another willing tenant depending on whether they receive consent from their landlord.
What is a mutual exchange
Housing Association and council tenants have a legal right to exchange their tenancy. This is dependent on the tenants first obtaining the landlords written consent. Consent may be refused only if the landlords has/have reasonable grounds for refusal.
Finding an exchange
The Association has a register of people looking for mutual exchanges at our main reception.
A website which assists tenants to find a swap across the country is called Home Swappers. There may be a charge for this service.
The application process
If you have found someone you wish to swap with complete the application attached.
