Crawley Borough Council operates a combined register policy that allows you as a tenant to move from one council property in the town to another. A transfer to a housing association property is also possible.
You can search for available accommodation on www.crawley-homechoice.org.uk . Conditions apply.
Once your entry onto the Homeswapper website has been approved by us, you will be able to access information about tenants in Crawley who wish to exchange properties, as well as details of those wishing to move here from outside the Borough. Homeswapper will also email you at regular intervals with details of suitable exchange partners. If you do not have access to the internet, Homeswapper will send you details of suitable exchange partners via your mobile phone every two weeks.
If you do not have access to the internet yourself there are other ways for you to register and access the Homeswapper website;
For help using the Homeswapper service you must contact them direct via their website.
Application forms for HomeSwapper are available at the Town Hall, or you can download an application form here . Please be aware that details you submit will be stored on file.
For more information on how to exchange your property with another tenant contact your Housing Officers or call 01293 438000. You must already be a council or housing association tenant to be considered for a mutual exchange. You must also have a clear rent account.
You must remember that if you find another tenant to swap homes with you through Homeswapper you will both need to complete the ‘ Permission for Mutual Exchange ’ form and return it to us at the Town Hall. Processing your request can take some time, so don’t forget to submit both forms otherwise this will delay things.
Crawley Borough Council runs an incentive scheme that helps council tenants who are looking to downsize from their existing home.
