Moving Home

Are you looking to move home?

If so, there are a number of different options you have. 

Transfers 

If you are looking to move home, you may be able to transfer to another Arhag property, or to a property owned by another Housing Association. 

You may want to move home because of overcrowding, under occupying (bedroom taxed), or medical issues. 

Arhag can rehouse tenants who are not in rent arrears, do not have a pending court hearing because of a serious breach of their tenancy agreement, and are not subject to anti-social behaviour action. 

If you want to transfer, complete a transfer application form.

If you are tranferring due to medical issues, please complete the medical assessment form. 

It is important to note that Arhag has a limited number of properties, so when completing this application form, you should be open to location, as this will increase you chance of finding a suitable home. 

Home Swapper

Arhag has signed up to Home Swapper to allow our residents to register their property and search for a new home outside of Arhag. Home Swapper is a internet based mutual exchange system that allows you to exchange homes with another person, and is accessable on Computers, Phones, and Tablets. 

Once you have found a person you wish to swap homes with, you can complete the Mutual Exchange form and return it to Arhag. Your exchange partner must do the same with their landlord. 

If you are looking for a new home, register on Home Swapper now. 

Once Arhag has recieved your mutual exchange form, you will be notified as to wether your application has been refused, consented, or conditional consent within six weeks (42 days). 


 

 

If you need assistance completing your HomeSwapper registration and searching for a new home, you can contact your Housing Officer on 0207 424 7370 who will be happy to help. 

If you are considering looking for a new home on the private market, websites such as Gumtree, Zoopla, Rightmove, and OpenRent may be useful. 

Giving Notice 

If you have found another home, you must give Arhag 28 days notice.

All tenants are obliged to give 28 days notice unless you are transferring into another Arhag property or taking part in an approved mutual exchange. This notice period is contained in your tenancy agreement. 

Your tenancy will always be ended on the Sunday following the return of the keys as all our tenancies are weekly commencing on a Monday. You must ensure all your rent is paid, you return the all of the keys, empty the property, ensure it is left in a good condition and any gas/electric cards/keys are returned.
