Swap a home
Information for residents who want to swap or mutually exchange their home
If you have a secure or assured tenancy with us, you can swap or mutually exchange your home with another Peabody resident, a tenant of another housing association, or a council tenant.
You cannot exchange with somebody in private rented accommodation.
Applying for a swap or mutual exchange
You’ll need written confirmation from us before you arrange to move, and your exchange partner needs written confirmation from their landlord too.
If you swap without written confirmation, we may take legal action to repossess the property.
Tell us you want to swap your home
Please note: before starting the process you need to have found someone to swap your home with. You can find people on these websites:
- Housing Moves
Available to Peabody residents and administered by an external agency.
- House Exchange
