Mutual Exchange of Accommodation
An exchange is a straight swap between tenants. Here is a guide to the procedures for a successful exchange, along with your rights as a tenant.
Havebury may refuse your application to exchange in some circumstances. These could include the following:
- Your account being in arrears;
- Unsuitability of accommodation to be exchanged;
- Underoccupancy of either property
If the tenant with whom you are swapping is not a Havebury tenant, then their landlord must agree to the exchange taking place and you will need to check whether you will lose any rights, such as the preserved Right to Buy. You can only swap with the tenant of a local authority or another registered social landlord.
