Mutual Exchange

Most council tenants have the right to exchange with tenants of other councils and housing associations. This is known as a mutual exchange. You can find out more in our mutual exchanges information booklet.

If you are still within the introductory period of your tenancy you cannot exchange until the introductory period has ended and you become a secure tenant.

HomeSwapper is an easy-to-use online home swap service that helps you to exchange your home either locally or nationally. Registration is free for Tandridge District Council tenants.

Once you have found a property, you will need to apply online directly from the HomeSwapper website if you have a registered account.

A mutual exchange will only be approved if there is no cost to the Council, other than gas and electric safety checks. We also do not decorate or make any repairs to the property before you move in. Anyone moving in will be responsible for any damage, even if it occurred before the exchange date.
