Home Swap: a simple solution when you want to move

There are many reasons a private tenant might want to move: change in family circumstances or work, changes in income, schooling or health are just a few. But it’s always time-consuming, stressful and expensive - which is why we’ve designed a system that makes it easy to change your home.

No hidden fees

Our professional reputation is based on long-term tenancies that please both landlord and tenant. We don’t pad our fees, charge for extras or surprise you with nasty bills.

Securing your property

The right property is always affordable, and we work with tenants to find a place they can call home without breaking the bank and to keep them there long-term.

Additional Support

Life happens. If things get difficult, our specialist team is on hand with advice, support and financial planning to help you keep your home and pay your bills.

Home Swap - for tenants in private rented accommodation

A simple but professionally managed mutual exchange scheme between two privately rented households, HomeSwap gives tenants the power to find a property that works for them, without too much red tape or expense.

How to register with HomeSwap

Registering to become an exchange partner couldn’t be easier; either click the light blue house icon on the right to take you to our find a property page, or send us an email at, and we’ll email you a PDF Fillable application form to download and complete in your own time.

Securing Your Home

Exchanging homes is often the easiest and quickest and effective way of creating long-term sustainable tenancies. You are not being offered a new tenancy but ‘swapping’ (assigning by way of exchange) your existing tenancy. In doing so you take over the terms and conditions of each other’s tenancy.

Finding an Exchange Partner

We’ll provide you with a free platform for your current home to be advertised. Once the property is advertised, we search our database and provide you with a list of exchange partners that match your ideal home specifications. It will then be up to you to make contact with your matched exchange partners.

How much does HomeSwap cost?

Registering for Home Swap and advertising your current property is absolutely free. Once you’re ready to exchange, HomeSwap takes care of the legalities, leaving you to organise the removal of your furniture to your new home. Our fees (on exchange) are £92.00 per exchange partner for a single tenancy, and £124.00 for joint tenancies.


We look after your property as if it were our own and we look after our tenants as if we were finding a property for our own loved ones. Creating value in property and trust in relationships isn’t just a slogan, it’s a way of life at Bournes Lettings Agency.
