Swapping your home – applying for a Mutual Exchange
Please fill in this form when you have found someone who would like to swap homes with you. Your Housing Services Officer will use the form to decide whether the exchange can go ahead.
If we don’t give permission, your Housing Services Officer will tell you why. In some cases, permission for the mutual exchange to take place will be conditional, for example, you will be required to clear any arrears before the mutual exchange can take place.
Both parties must complete a separate application form.
We will try to ensure that we tell you our decision within 42 days of receiving this form. Consent is conditional on our receiving all the information we need. You must not exchange properties or make any removal arrangements until:
- Both parties have the full written permission of the landlord(s) involved.
- Both parties have signed Deeds of Assignment by Mutual Exchange.
- Both parties have met any conditions of the consent.
