Mutual Exchange

What is a mutual exchange?

A mutual exchange is where two or more tenants decide they want to swap homes. You can exchange with a housing association or Council property.

Why should you want to exchange?

A mutual exchange may be your best option if you want to move but are not eligible to register on our housing waiting list because your present accommodation is suitable for you and your family. Even if you are on the waiting list it is still worth considering a mutual exchange as you may face a long wait for a move.

How do you find an exchange?

Last year the Council joined a national exchange scheme called 'HomeSwapper' which enables tenants to register for free. We are only able to offer this free service to tenants of Fareham Borough Council. The Council has as a result now withdrawn its register.

If you are a Fareham Borough Council Tenant and wish to take advantage of this free service please visit External Hyperlink and register your details.

If you live in the Fareham Borough and have another social landlord then please visit External Hyperlink to check if your landlord is partnered with the service or alternatively contact your landlord direct.
