New Year, New Home?


Published: 20/12/2021

Did you know that around a third of our new tenants come through Mutual Exchanges?  

We operate a Mutual Exchange Service with East Lothian Council called East Lothian Xchanges. Over 600 households are listed with the Service who are looking to move home for lots of reasons; to live a different area, have a bigger or smaller home or an easier to manage garden, or even just something a bit closer to somewhere they walk their dog.

If you’d like to move, but don’t qualify for any priority, East Lothian Xchanges can be a great way to find someone to swap with.  All you need to do is check the list to see if any of the listings match up with what you need; or list your own home.

If you’re not online, you can call us and ask us to run a search for you – just ask for the area, size and property type you’re looking for, e.g. a 3 bedroom house in Dunbar, and we can check for you (there were 5 of them the last time we looked, by the way).

There is also a handy ‘print flyer’ tool (it’s at the bottom of each listing).  If you’ve added your home to the exchange list, you can use this tool to create a printable flyer to promote your exchange listing.
