If you find a home that you like, it is then up to you to contact the tenant(s) at the address and see if a swap might be possible. You will then need to arrange to look at each others properties.
If you agree that you wish to swap properties, you must both get your landlords permission as they need to make sure that the homes are suitable for your needs and that your rent accounts are clear.
Important information for existing Open Moves - homes customers:
- you must not arrange to move out of your home until your landlord has agreed on the home swap
- the Open Moves – homes system gives you an opportunity to show off your home to other people who maybe interested in a home swap
