How to swap homes

If your housing requirements change, you may be able to swap homes with another tenant: this is known as a mutual exchange.

Swapping homes through a process called mutual exchange can be a great way to find a home that’s more suitable for you and your family.

  • Find a bigger home: benefit from extra space if you have more children.
  • Find a smaller home: find a more manageable home if your kids have moved out.
  • Move to a new area: get a home nearer your work, or closer to your children’s school.
  • Get a garden: move to a home with outdoor space if you’ve got a growing family.
  • Adapt to health changes: find a home with disabled access, or without stairs.
