What is a Mutual Exchange?

A Mutual Exchange is where you swap houses with another tenant - with our permission.

You can make an exchange with any Nottingham City Homes tenant, or any council or housing association tenant anywhere in the UK.

You'll need permission from all landlords before the move can take place - but once granted, it can be an easier and quicker way of finding a new home.

It's really important that you carefully check the home that you are swapping to, before the legal transfer is completed - so you know exactly what you will be moving in to. We recommend visiting your exchange at least twice, before committing.
