Transferring/Swapping your home

Previously known as Mutual Exchange*, transferring is an alternative way to find a new home.

Whether you need more (or less) space, to move for work or to be closer to family, it’s a great option for social housing tenants who can’t access or don’t want to wait for the normal allocation process. It gives you more control and means you’re able to choose a home that suits your needs better, in a place you want to live.

HomeSwapper is the UK’s leading mutual exchange* service for social housing tenants and it’s free for MHA tenants to register!

*Please note that as the HomeSwapper website is UK-wide, it still uses the terms ‘Mutual Exchange’ and ‘Tenancy’. In Wales, under the Renting Homes (Wales) Act, these terms have changed to ‘Transfer’ and ‘Contract Holder’.
