Make a Wise Move with us

You can swap your home with another council or housing association tenant in Lambeth or anywhere else in the country, provided your landlord agrees and you are an existing council or housing association tenant a Wise Move Swap may be an option for you.

Wise Move gives you the chance to find another tenant who wants to swap homes, and agree to take over each other's tenancy in the condition that it is currently in. There are some conditions attached, for example you cannot move to a home that is far too big for you and if you have rent arrears that may well be a problem.

Any arrears on your account may reduce your chances of successfully swapping your home through Wise Move. If your account is currently in arrears, contact our Central Income Team for advice on how to you can clear it.

However, it can be an ideal way to find a move, particularly if you are struggling to get a transfer or wish to move to a different area.

You can register for Wise Move online and we will publish your advert letting potential matches find you.

Further down the page are lists of households who have registered with us and want to swap their properties. Open the relevant list and scroll through to find suitable swaps.

Once you've found a property that you're interested in and the current tenants are looking for a property similar to yours just contact the Welfare Solutions Team on 020 7926 6399 or by email at HMCITEnquiries@lambeth.gov.uk and we will give you the contact details for the people who currently live at the property so that you can get in touch and arrange the swap.

If both parties agree to the swap, the Welfare Solutions Team can guide you through the rest of the process.
