Mutual exchange

Mutual exchange is a home swap with another customer. It could be a house, flat, bungalow, maisonette or any other property type exchange.

You can swap homes with any other council or housing association customer in the UK providing they have the right to mutual exchange and want to swap homes with you.

You can either home swap with one customer, known as a direct exchange or you could try and find a three way house exchange. There is no limit to how many people you can have in your home swap chain, however the more people in the home swap, the more complicated it gets and the more likely it is to fail as there are more people who could change their mind. Nevertheless, three way mutual exchanges are becoming increasingly popular as they give you more ways of getting into the property you want.
