Exchanging your council home

What is a mutual exchange?

A mutual exchange is when two or more tenants exchange their properties, also known as a Home Swap. Each tenant must move into their proposed exchange partner’s property, and must only do this after they have been given consent by the relevant landlords and have an agreed sign up and move date confirmed. You cannot exchange into an empty property.

You can find an exchange using the options below:

  • register for free with the Homeswapper website as a Swindon Borough Council tenant. This is a nationwide service so you can move not only within Swindon, but anywhere in the country.
  • look on Facebook
  • place cards in shop windows 
  • talk to friends and colleagues
