Our HomeSwap scheme means you can swap homes with another social housing tenant who is looking to move into either to a smaller or larger home. How it works:

First you need to register your property, then we will advertise your home on the Durham Key Options website. This means you will be able to search through properties available from different housing providers across the County, not just Livin.

You will receive a reference number which will allow you to log into your account and search for a suitable swap and contact tenants directly who you may wish to swap homes with.

Top Tips for Homeswap
