Life is busy and there are certain times when your home no longer suits your needs. There are a number of options available that make moving home as stress free as possible and we’ll support you at each step along the way.

You can transfer to another Aspire Housing home or to a home with another housing association as long as you have a clear rent account, have not caused anti-social behaviour and have kept your home as per your tenancy agreement.


You can swap your home using HomeSwapper, which is an online mutual exchange service which lets you advertise your property and find someone to swap with, bringing together people from Newcastle-under-Lyme and around the country who wish to move home.

As an Aspire Housing customer registration is FREE of charge and only takes a few minutes. Simply register at and once your registration has been approved you will be able to search and view matches online.

Transfer to another Aspire Housing property

There are two ways to transfer to another Aspire Housing property.

We apply a simple priority system to customers who apply for one of our homes via HomeHunt.

Taking part in our communities is important to us so we award priority to those who are making a community contribution through work or volunteering.

As an Aspire Housing tenant you will also get priority if you need to move because the home you are living in does not meet your housing needs. Those tenants that are suitably housed will not be eligible to apply for a home via Homehunt and will be signposted to Homeswapper.

All of our homes are advertised via Homehunt.
Secondly, you must also register with the council approved scheme that operates in the area where you want to transfer to.
