Swapping homes with another tenant

If you are a secure tenant you can exchange your home with another council or housing association tenant.  When you exchange your home you’ll also be swapping your rights for those of the other tenant so it’s useful to check:

  • The terms and conditions of their tenancy
  • Their security of tenure -  you may find you would have to swap your secure tenancy for a fixed term tenancy
  • The cost of their rent - you may find you would be paying more than you currently do and you need to be able to pay for the difference
  • The conditions of the home you are exchanging into, check what repairs works, if any, are being carried out by your new landlord
