Birmingham leads the way in home swap initiative

The City Council has participated in the scheme since February 2010, many months in advance of the government’s recent initiative – Home Swap Direct – launched by Grant Shapps MP, Housing Minister.

Cllr John Lines, Birmingham City Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said:  “This is an important service which gives tenants the opportunity to exchange with others to find a home that better meets their needs.

“I am very pleased that Birmingham City Council tenants have been able to use this important service since February 2010, and that it is now being rolled out across the country.”
