Can I apply for a mutual exchange?

Can I apply for a mutual exchange?

As a tenant you have the right to exchange your tenancy and home with another Dales tenant, or a tenant from another Registered Social Landlord or Local Authority. You must not however carry out any exchange without the written permission from your landlord and the landlord of the tenant you are wishing to exchange with.

If you wish to advertise for a Mutual Exchange you can register on www.home-options.org which means that your home will be advertised for other tenants to see. You can also use this website to look for another property to exchange with.

Once you have found someone to exchange with you must write to Dales Housing requesting permission to exchange. We will then examine the application and within 42 days either approve or reject the request to exchange. If we do refuse your application we will always give you the reasons for doing so.
