Mutual Exchange

What is a mutual exchange?

When two or more tenants swap their homes it is called a mutual exchange. If you have a secure or assured lifetime tenancy with us at Circle Housing, you can apply for a mutual exchange.

You can usually swap with:

  • another Circle tenant
  • a tenant of another housing association
  • a tenant of a local authority.

You do not have to swap like for like, so you can find a larger or smaller home that suits your needs. You can swap with someone in your local area or anywhere else in the country.

If you are interested in exchanging your home, please get in touch with us using the contact details at the bottom of the first page. It is important that you understand what is involved. We will do our best to advise you and help you move to a new home.

If your mutual exchange partner has a fixed term/ flexible tenancy, please get in touch with us for more information.
