The Bedfordshire Homefinder partnership will soon be offering a new service for tenants looking for an exchange.
The Homeswapper service will be free for tenants of social housing providers in Luton and Central Bedfordshire to list their homes for exchange and search for properties they may want to exchange with. Tenants can already make use of the House Exchange service but we believe that offering Homeswapper too will give greater choice of areas and properties that may be available.
As the service develops, you will be able to check the progress of your exchange application online and communicate easily with your landlord via email if you have any queries.
We hope this will improve services to tenants who need to move but who don’t have a high priority to transfer on a council housing register. Over the past year, nearly 100 tenants have moved via mutual exchange making this a great way to resolve your housing needs.
