Looking for somewhere smaller to live or having trouble paying your rent as you’ve got too many rooms?
Here’s a story of two tenants who improved their lives by swapping homes. They found each other on a mutual exchange website and after a few checks they were able to swap to their dream homes.

Photo of Natali outside her new house

Natali lived in a 3 bed house with her 5 children aged between 1 and 15. She needed somewhere bigger.

I’d just had the Decent Homes work done and I’d decorated the house nicely. Yahsmin’s house caught my eye so I got in touch. It all happened quite quickly and I love my new home. I never want to move again.”



Yahsmin lived in a 4 bed house, her children had grown up so she wanted to move to a smaller house.

I’d been looking for an exchange for ages. I’d had a lot of interest in my house but I couldn’t find anything I liked. When Natali got in touch, I was pleased. Her house was in the same area as mine so was just what I needed.”
