Do you want to move home?
Is your home too small for your household? Too big now the kids have left home? Or do you need to move for work, training or other reasons?
We have made an addition to our existing mutual exchange scheme in partnership with HomeSwapper - an online service which provides tenants with a wider choice of housing options.
We will still continue to provide the mutual exchange cards in our offices however, if you are still looking for a mutual exchange, it is essential (if you were registered with the Leicester Swap Scheme) that you re-register* with HomeSwapper to maximise your choices.

All LCC Housing Services tenants can now register for the
service for FREE with immediate effect!
