Mutual Exchanges


HomeSwapper is a free scheme for Mutual Exchanges between  public sector tenants across the UK. Both Shetland Islands Council (SIC) and Hjaltland Housing Association (HHA) are members of HomeSwapper

The service is web-based and easy to use. An applicant registers with the HomeSwapper website and can choose up to 9 areas. By adding your requirements to the website, the scheme matches your details to new homes that meet the criteria of the type of house and area you wish to move to.  An applicant can receive notifications about new matches by email or text message.  

The Mutual Exchange can go ahead once two tenants agree they would like to swap houses.  This is subject to the formal approval required of each tenant's landlord. 

HomeSwapper can help you identify another tenant who may wish to exchange with you if you are looking for a different property, whether it may be smaller, larger or in a different area.
