Mutual exchange

You might be able to ‘swap’ your home by exchanging tenancies with another SSHA tenant or tenants of another housing association/council. This tenancy swap is called a mutual exchange.

If you would like to consider mutual exchange, start by registering with Home Swapper.  This is a mutual exchange service exclusively for social housing tenants and it is free to use. When you register, you will need to log that SSHA is your current landlord.

We will need to give permission for a mutual exchange and there are certain factors that we take into consideration before granting permission. These factors include any rent arrears and outstanding repairs. To find out more please take a look at the mutual exchange guidance notes in useful document area below.
