Home Exchange

What is the home exchange scheme?

With a Home Exchange, you may ‘swap’ your home with another willing tenant (which includes Housing Trust tenants) as long as both landlords agree to accept the transferring tenant. We do not manage a list of properties for exchange however, we will still consider any requests for a Home Exchange on a case by case basis when presented to us. 
 
To be eligible to enter into a Home Exchange: 
  • you must be registered on the Affordable Housing Gateway
  • you must not be in rental arrears
  • the property you wish to move to must match your needs
  • you must leave your property in good condition
Before you commit to any Home Exchange, please check with your new prospective landlord about their tenancy obligation as different landlords have different obligations, for example keeping pets in the home.

Exchange agreed

If you find someone you would like to carry out an exchange with both parties must complete the application form. Once the form has been received we will carry out a number of checks and you will be contacted by our Allocations team if your exchange has been approved. You must ensure that the property you are exchanging into has had a condition report completed and that the outgoing tenant has carried out any work needed before you move. Kitchens and bathrooms must be taken as seen as these are replaced as part of our Planned Maintenance Programme of works.
