Mutual exchange applications

We are experiencing an unprecedented demand for mutual exchanges

If you’ve submitted an application, you will receive a decision in principle within 42 days. Your move will be dependent on completing all checks required by all parties and these could take up to six months to complete.

If you have an assured, secure or fixed term tenancy with us, you may be able to swap your home with another social housing resident.

From Tuesday 6 February, all new applications for mutual exchange will need to be done through HomeSwapper.

Applied for a mutual exchange before 6 February? Please read the information under Applications before 6 February 2024 below.
