House Exchange Scheme

The easiest and most flexible way to find your new home, is through the national House Exchange scheme. You can advertise your home and find other tenants to swap with for free.

Currently over 100,000 people are looking to swap their properties around the UK, so your ideal home could be only a few clicks away.  It is easy to use, simply enter your details at www.houseexchange.org.uk and the site will match you up with other would-be-swappers.

Visit the House Exchange website now to sign up.

Once you’re registered, you can start messaging the properties you’re interested in and arranging viewings.  It is a great first step in your House Exchange journey.

If you are having difficulty accessing the internet but wish to register with House Exchange please call into one of our Hubs or alternatively contact Connect on 0300 111 1133 and one of our advisors will assist you with this.

Before signing up to House Exchange, you must have:

  • A satisfactory rent account
  • No current anti-social behaviour action against you
  • Your property must be in an acceptable condition

 

The most successful swaps have at least one photo of the home!

Why it’s important? If you’re serious about swapping, add a photo. It shows you’re keen and it helps screen out people who won’t be interested. Try to show your home at its best.

Take a good picture and ask yourself “What does this show someone who has never seen this room before?”. Hold the camera in the corner of the room to try and get as much as you can in the picture.

If you’re worried for any reason about your home being identified, upload photos of the inside or garden, and make sure you use the description box (tenant comments) to add information about the outside of your home.
