ANY ELIGIBILITY ISSUES
Some homes have eligibility rules in place that you
must meet in order to move in. These often don’t come
up until later in the process. Some of the things to
check are age restrictions, mobility restrictions (e.g. is it
a sheltered home), a need for a local connection or any
adaptions for disability which you don’t require.
If the home is too big or too small for your needs,
you probably won’t be able to move in. It is a valid
reason for a landlord to decline a swap and it is one of
the most common.
HOW SERIOUS IS THE OTHER SWAPPER?
Don’t make any major changes to your life until your
swap has been approved and you have signed the
paperwork. Swappers (including you) have a legal right
to pull out of a mutual exchange at any point before
the paperwork is signed.
