What is mutual exchange?
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 tenants who want to swap homes, and includes non-Broadland properties. Using the site is easy and free. To register, simply visit http://broadland.houseexchange.org.uk and complete your details online. Remember to add a description and pictures of your property to maximise your chances of a successful swap!
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.
If you have an intermediate rent tenancy you are not eligible for House Exchange.
