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

  1. Download the mutual exchange policy (pdf, 38kb)
  2. complete a mutual exchange application form (Word, 110KB) 
  3. email it to lettingsadminteam@peabody.org.uk

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.

Another way to move from your home

Housing Moves is available to Peabody residents and administered by an external agency.

If you have further questions about swapping or mutually exchanging your home, please contact Peabody Direct.
