Mutual exchange

Already a PCH tenant and looking for a new home? We have a mutual exchange service for its tenants.

HomeSwapper is for social tenants (in rented property) who want a house swap, flat swap or to exchange their council house.

This service is free for PCH tenants and allows you to look for exchanges locally or nationally to match your needs – just remember to get your Housing Officer’s permission first.

HomeSwapper covers the whole of the UK and 70% of new matches are made within 24 hours.

To apply simply go to the HomeSwapper website.

Everyone who is not on a Starter Tenancy has a right to exchange.

You have a right to exchange your home with another PCH tenant or other housing association or council tenant. For more information contact your local Housing Officer, where you can also get a leaflet about mutual exchanges.

Right to exchange

You have the right to exchange your home with another Plymouth Community Homes’ tenant, a tenant from a council, or a housing association tenant. We may refuse an exchange if you do not meet certain conditions. For further information, contact your housing officer, and refer to the leaflet, Mutual Exchanges, available from local housing offices.

For more information call the Housing Choices Team 0800 694 3101 or ask at your local Housing Officer.
