Mutual Exchanges

A 'swap' or mutual exchange is a way of housing association and Council tenants finding a new home.  There are certain rules about who can swap and permission from the housing association is needed but the basic principle is two tenants meet, see each other's properties and agree to swap homes.

There are a number of websites that allow people to ‘advertise’ their homes.  The two most commonly used websites in the Surrey Heath area are:

Homeswapper -

House Exchange -

You can use either of these websites to try and match your property with another housing association or Council tenant.  If you find a successful ‘swap’ call your housing association or Council who will agree whether the ‘swap’ can go ahead.
