FOR HELP AND ADVICE ON MOVING AND

YOUR RIGHTS ON MUTUAL EXCHANGE,

YOU CAN CONTACT US ON 0300 123 6000.

8.

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.

9.

OCCUPANCY REQUIREMENTS

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.

10.

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.
