What is it?

Who is eligible?

Most people with a social tenancy in their name who do not have any rent arrears or a history of antisocial behaviour. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, check with your landlord.

How it works

The Council pays an annual subscription to a nationwide exchange schemes called Homeswapper. This means it is free for our tenants to register. You should check with your landlord, if it not the Council, to see if they subscribe otherwise there is a monthly fee.
