Mutual Exchanges

Coronavirus: Temporary suspension of mutual exchange applications

For the safety of applicants and staff, we have temporarily suspended mutual exchanges during the current coronavirus pandemic.

Sadly we cannot currently accept any new applications. Any received will be returned to you for sending in again when the situation has improved.

Applications received on or after the date that the Government announced the current lockdown arrangements (Monday 23 March) have also been suspended. These applications will be treated as a priority when the situation improves.

Please continue to check our website for updates.


Mutual Exchange 

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

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.

To find someone to swap with, register for free with Homeswapper.
