Mutual exchanges

A mutual exchange is when one tenant swaps properties with another. You can exchange with other council tenants and with some housing association tenants but you must have the consent of the landlord of each property.

Two or possibly multi tenants will exchange their homes anywhere in the country, you are not restricted to properties in Hillingdon. Probationary tenants are not permitted to do a mutual exchange during the lifetime of their probation.

Mutual exchange can be a faster way of finding a new home rather than applying for a transfer especially if your transfer application is assessed as a low priority. It is important to make sure you understand all the implications, before going ahead with a mutual exchange.
