For those who already have a secure or assured tenancy one of the easiest ways to move is via a mutual exchange. This is when two or more council or housing association tenants swap homes with each other.
If you are considering moving into a smaller home you can experience many benefits including:
- Savings on household bills.
- Lower rent and council tax payments.
- Cash payments up to £500 made to Swan tenants swapping into a smaller Swan home.
Our Smarter Swaps scheme helps match those living in larger homes they no longer need with overcrowded families.
Please contact the Allocations Team for more information.
There is also a guidance note which gives information on Mutual Exchange. These are designed to be printable should you wish to have a hard copy too.
