Exchange your home
You can exchange your home with other housing association tenants if you are an assured tenant.
Silva Homes has joined a national scheme called Homeswapper to help our customers to find a suitable swap.
The Homeswapper scheme enables tenants across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to find people to swap homes with. It is the largest scheme operating in the UK with over 80,000 people registered. Silva Homes will pay for you to register with Homeswapper and will have to approve the swap (or mutual exchange) when you find a suitable move.
Please contact us for further information by calling 0800 692 3000 or visit the Homeswapper website by clicking here.
We will not carry out improvements or redecorations following an exchange unless these are part of a planned programme of work.
We aim to use our property stock in the most effective way possible so people have homes of suitable sizes for their needs. A mutual exchange may be declined if under-occupation (a property has more bedrooms than needed) is created as a result of the move. Other housing associations may allow under-occupation. If you are of working age, claim benefit and you have one or more spare bedrooms, your housing benefit may be reduced. If you'd like to discuss mutual exchange, please contact our Tenancy Co-ordinator on 01344 382800 or email by clicking here.
