Transfers and mutual exchange
We know that where you want to live and your circumstances can change over time. That's why we're happy to offer transfers and mutual exchange opportunities.
Transfers and exchanges
Residents living in Anchor rented housing may apply for a transfer either within their scheme or to another Anchor property. However; we will not consider you for a vacancy until you have been living in your existing home for at least a year, have no outstanding rent or service charge arrears, and as long as there are no management concerns such as the transfer involving significant costs to Anchor.
If you move to another Anchor property this will involve starting a new tenancy with us and therefore the rent on your new flat may be higher than your current rent.
You also have the right (with our permission) to exchange, or swap, your flat with the tenant of another Housing Association or of a Local Authority.
House Exchange is an internet-based company that you can subscribe to that allows you to swap your Anchor home with another tenant from anywhere in the country who has also subscribed.
Once you have found a property you wish to swap to you must obtain the written permission from us. Your local manager will be able to provide you with further information about House Exchange and the process.
