If you are already living with us or another Housing Association but are looking to move, a mutual exchange could be the answer.

What is a mutual exchange?

A mutual exchange is when two housing association residents decide to swap homes.

It is only possible for a tenant to have a mutual exchange if:

  • Your first year of tenancy has passed.
  • You are not in arrears with your rent.
  • You have not breached your tenancy agreement.

It is important that before any mutual exchanges have happened, both parties involved have requested permission from their social landlord first.
