Mutual exchange

We call swapping your home with another tenant a ‘mutual exchange’. As one of our tenants, you can swap your home with another tenant in Dacorum or with a tenant in another area of the United Kingdom.

Advertise and search for a home

You can advertise your council home and search for another tenant to exchange your home with on the:

House Exchange website

Many social landlords across England use this system and it gives you access to thousands of properties across the country. House Exchange is a database of information given by tenants that want to move.

Bedroom standards
