Mutual Exchange

What is a Mutual Exchange?

A Mutual Exchange is where you swap your home with another tenant. If you are a
Lincolnshire Rural tenant you can swap with a tenant of another council or a tenant
of a Housing Association.

Mutual Exchanges are a good way to move without having to wait a long time on the
transfer list or a waiting list with another council.

To arrange a Mutual Exchange you need to find a tenant who wants to swap with
you. When you find a property that may be suitable, it is up to you to contact the
tenant directly.

Think very carefully before you exchange with someone. If you do exchange, you
take on all of the rights and responsibilities of the previous tenant.
