House swapping

If your home no longer meets your needs, you may want to consider a house swap

Mutual exchange

A mutual exchange is a house swap between council and housing association tenants. Since the introduction of the ‘bedroom tax’, some tenants are looking to downsize to a smaller property. A mutual exchange can also benefit households wanting to move to a larger property.

To be eligible for an exchange, all tenants involved must have an assured or secure tenancy. Tenants in temporary accommodation on a licence agreement or in supported accommodation on a shorthold are not able to exchange.

The House Exchange website brings together people who want to swap their homes. Using the site is easy and free. Simply visit http://broadland.houseexchange.org.uk and complete your details online.

Once you’ve registered and your details have been approved, your property will appear in our database.

You’ll be able to search for:

 

  • a specific property
  • people who want your property
  • a match both ways or a three-way search

You’ll also be able to share your property advert on House Exchange’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
