Contact your housing officer

Your housing officer can give you more information about mutual exchanges. They will be able to tell you how an exchange may affect your tenancy rights, if your swap partner has a different tenancy type to the one you have.

Please note, if you find another tenant to swap homes with all tenants involved will need to complete the Mutual Exchanges application form and return it to us at the Town Hall.
