Powys County Council helping tenants to swap and move homes

Council tenants wanting help to swap and move homes can now access an easy-to-use online service thanks to a new partnership, Powys County Council has announced.

The council’s Housing Service has joined forces with swapandmove.co.uk to offer council tenants an easy-to-use online service to help them swap and move homes.

This new service matches council tenants with other tenants who may wish to swap homes with them. Swaps are available both locally and nationally and council tenants can use www.swapandmove.co.uk free of charge.

Cllr Graham Brown, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "Partnering with swapandmove.co.uk will ensure that we offer our tenants a highly effective mutual exchange service, where they can swap and move homes anywhere in the UK.

"Rather than waiting on a transfer list, tenants can now actively search for the right home for them. Mutual exchange can be a much faster way of finding a new home, and is becoming increasingly popular for both tenants and landlords.

"It enables landlords to increase the housing options that they offer, while giving tenants access to a larger number of properties."

swapandmove.co.uk is run by Abritas Ltd, the largest supplier of web-based housing software solutions in the UK and a founder member of the government’s Home Swap Direct scheme.
