House Exchange is a national mutual exchange platform that supports both social housing residents and landlords. Every year thousands of social housing residents move by swapping their homes on House Exchange, drawing on two decades of unrivalled experience. It is a quick and easy way for residents to be able to connect and swap their home.
There are many reasons why people may need to move. They may be looking to downsize if their children have grown up and moved out, or they are a growing family needing a bigger home. They may need to relocate to a different area for work, or to be closer to friends and family. As residents’ circumstances change, House Exchange enables them to move to a property more suited to their needs.
National network of homes
House Exchange has tens of thousands of homes - from studio apartments to six bedroom detached family houses.
Established in 2004, House Exchange has been developed with the help of local authorities and social landlords across the UK and is a founding partner of the Government’s HomeSwap Direct scheme.
