What is a transfer?
A transfer is when a tenant requests to be moved to another social rented property, owned by the AHA. It is not a house swap as the tenant will be asking to move into an empty property.
What is an exchange?
An exchange is when a tenant would like to swap properties with another AHA tenant providing they meet all the conditions outlined in the Allocations and Eligibility Policy.
Other tenants can ask at the AHA about any available exchange properties and, if they are interested, they can get in touch with the tenant to discuss making an exchange.
