Mutual exchange

House too big or too small? Have your housing needs changed over time? Then a mutual exchange might be just what you're looking for - this is a home swap between two social housing tenants. It gives you more control over the home you move to because you’re able to choose one that suits your needs in a place you want to live. There are a few options if you're thinking of a mutual exchange, and there will be certain terms and conditions you'll need to meet - these may vary depending on which route you take. 


If you're looking for a house swap, Castles & Coasts subscribe to the HomeSwapper mutual exchange service and we pay for our residents' registration (subject to no breaches of tenancy), so it's free for you to use. 

You can access the service online, through social media, or download a free app for your mobile and it's available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. With easy registration and search tools, instant messaging and Homeswapper's unique 'Multiswap' tool, it aims to help you find the swap that's right for you. For more information visit the Homeswapper website.
