Housing Associations

A Housing Association is a non-profit making organisation which provides accommodation either for people who can not afford their own home or who need special types of housing, for example elderly people.

Exchanging your home

If you currently live in a home provided by a social landlord and are looking for a new home then mutual exchange using Exchange Locata.

New applicants can register with the scheme, by completing one common application form. Once registered applicants will be able to bid for properties, across all areas within the partnership where they are eligible.

Applicants will need to choose one authority as their managing local authority (if they wish to apply to more than one of the partners), this is usually the authority they either live in or wish to live in.

Transfer List

To transfer between council or Housing Association properties you need to join the Dorset Homechoice
