A mutual exchange is basically a home swap with another tenant. You can swap homes with any housing association or council tenant in the UK providing they have the right to mutual exchange and want to swap homes with you.
Swaps can involve more than one property
You can swap with one tenant, which is known as direct exchange, or you could try and find a three way house exchange. There is no limit to how many people in the swap, however the more complicated it gets the more likely it is to fail as there are more people to change their mind.
