What sort of checks are done before a mutual exchange can go ahead?
Mandatory checks are carried out on:
- The tenancy type.
- If there any rent arrears.
- Whether the size of property meets the needs of the persons/family looking to move in.
- Any action taken for anti-social behaviour or breach of tenancy.
- If the property is adapted for any kind of disability.
- A home visit is undertaken to identify any repairs.
- Any other considerations in grounds under the Housing Act / Localism Act.
