Swapping your social housing home through Mutual Exchange
If you're already living in social housing, an easy way to relocate is to swap your home with another social housing tenant. You can do this through the Mutual Exchange process.
There are various websites that assist with this, for example HomeSwapper. This matches properties with tenants who want to swap houses across the country and can often be the easiest and quickest way to do this.
You will need your landlord's permission to swap before you can join HomeSwapper.
The Mutual Exchange process is not managed by Hastings Borough Council.
When you find a person who is prepared to swap their social housing home for yours, you will need to contact your Registered Provider (Housing Association). They will assist you in arranging the Mutual Exchange.
