The Government's new national 'Home Swap Direct' scheme makes it easier for tenants living in a Local Authority or Registered Social Landlord property to find a new property in another part of the country.
Local Authorities and Registered Social Landlords registered with Home Swap Direct have agreed to receive requests from each other and search their database for potential mutual exchange matches returning information to enable tenants to find matches in more than one mutual exchange system. This means that tenants looking to move, whether for a job, to be near family or to a property better suited to their needs, will be able to see available properties for exchange across the whole of the UK, not just those on the Gentoo Mutual Exchange website.
To access the Home Swap Direct System just click on the ‘Home Swap Direct' Tab and follow the instructions. Should you find a property you are interested in there is a link to contact the housing provider for more details.
