Would you like lower energy bills, a new community, to move closer to family and friends or just a fresh start?
Then a Mutual Exchange could be for you!
A Mutual Exchange is where two or more tenants who are in Social Housing accommodation can swap tenancies. This is a way of moving without waiting on long transfer or application lists. You can swap with:
- Another tenant from Trent & Dove Housing;
- Another council tenant or;
- Housing Association tenant.
Customers must find a swap partner themselves. Both parties must agree that they would like to put in an application to exchange tenancies. You must NOT move until we tell you that you can.
Please be aware that we will continue to carry out wear and tear repairs as usual, however we will not be responsible for the condition of the premises you move into. When you exchange, anything that is classed as a tenant’s liability, you will become responsible for in your new home.
