House Exchange is the largest not-for-profit home swapping system in the market, with hundreds of landlords signed up as partners. We specialise in facilitating introductions between social and council housing tenants who are looking to move home.
As a social landlord we have drawn on our knowledge and experience to design a national mobility solution for tenants. We have been helping residents find mutual exchanges for over a decade.
We believe that technology alone is never the answer, which is why we have invested in providing a team to support social landlords and ensure they gain maximum value from their investment in our product. We continue to embrace innovation whilst still providing great value to our partners, allowing partners to deliver efficiencies against their housing objectives.
Part of Clarion Housing, the largest Housing Association in the UK and a landlord with a social purpose; one that never forgets what it is for or where it has come from. We are focussed on providing a great service to tenants and partners and we continue to work hard to ensure that we remain dedicated to being the best we can be.
House Exchange operates as a non-profit making company.
We have been at the forefront of innovation in its market and our not for profit ethos sees us reinvest all of our surpluses back into developing and maintaining our website and services.
By valuing the past we can create a better future. We have the confidence to use our 100 years of experience to make a difference by providing new opportunities to move home. Through our partnerships we enable social housing residents to build secure and independent lives.
Social return on investment is something we’re very proud of at House Exchange. We evaluate social and economic impacts focusing on tenant mobility within social housing; this enables us to help other housing providers increase their social return on investment by utilising House Exchange.
