Mutual Exchange question
22/11/2009 7:51 pm
Hi i suceeded my mother's secure tenancy a few weeks ago. The HA informed me i had til feb to look for a 1 bedroom flat throught locator (as i am in a 3 bedroom). I have now found a couple with 1 child who want to swap with me, but i am worrying as to wether the HA would allow this as i am in a 3 bedroom. Can anybody put my mind at rest as i would rather have the choice of where i live rather than being told i have to live somewhere else.
What are the chances of them refusing the swap? And if they do refuse the swap can i turn around and demand an exchange or threaten them with legal action about remaining in my 3 bedroom property as they are making it difficult for me to swap in the first place?
They have told me i am only allowed to swap with the same HA i am with which limits me drastically becuase they want my property to go to one of their own tenants. Can they do this?? Where as on homeswapper there is no mention that you can only swap with the same HA?
Many thanks! Any info you can offer would be grateful?
