Mutual Exchange

Ayrshire Housing has subscribed to HomeSwapper, the UK’s largest online home-swapping platform. Tenants using the HomeSwapper service for a mutual exchange will have the opportunity to swap their home with another council or housing association tenant anywhere in the UK – greatly expanding housing options for tenants. This service is completely free for Ayrshire Housing tenants. To find out more and register with HomeSwapper, click here. HomeSwapper have also produced a Welcome Guide and Swapper Support Pack which is packed with helpful info.

If you have a current advert on our previous Mutual Exchange site, you’ll be contacted by email and given the opportunity to move your advert to HomeSwapper or you can head to the website and set up your own advert.

Once you have found a potential swap, you must apply to us to progress the exchange using this form:

The other tenant will need to apply to their landlord who may have different rules from us. Please read our own Mutual Exchange Policy.

We may refuse a request for the following reasons:

If we refuse permission we will tell you why if the reason refers to an issue with your tenancy. When you exchange, you must accept the house in the condition you find it. If the decoration is poor, or if the other tenant has damaged the property, we will not repair or redecorate it.
