Council or Housing Association mutual home exchange wanted, from London to Edinburgh, direct swap or third parties needed for multi-swap.
I have a secure tenancy Council 1st floor 3 bedroom flat (with the Right To Buy) in the Lewisham borough of South-East London. All on one level, no steps or stairs inside my flat & there are 2 lifts to serve my 5 storey block. Sturdy brick and concrete old-school council flats/block. My home has no balcony or private garden but this is a very quiet, green & nice area, close to all necessary amenities and brilliant transport links, with train stations/overground, buses for local areas, Central London and Kent all within 5-15 minutes walk. Small 3 low-rise blocks estate, that I have lived in and happily raised a family in, for over 20 years, at the end of a cul-de-sac, with nearby roadside parking. Communal outside green space. Near Crystal Palace & Dulwich & Brockwell parks & Sydenham woods. near to South-circular which takes you out to Kent. It is a really nice, well kept, clean & quiet estate, & a great area for raising kids in. Southwark, Greenwich, Bromley & Lambeth boroughs are all close by.
WHAT I WANT
I want a secure or assured tenancy council or housing association property, with pets allowed, preferably a house, bungalow, ground floor flat or maisonette, with it's own secure, private garden, ideally with 2 bedrooms, but maybe only 1 bedroom if there is also a boxroom/all other rooms are large/lots of storage space, within Edinburgh or surrounding areas (within approx. 20 miles) & also properties in areas such as Berwick Upon Tweed, The Scottish Borders & across the Forth, in Fife. Also, I will look at & MIGHT consider split level, 1st floor or basement properties with own private garden & maybe a 1st floor flat/maisonette but ONLY IF has balcony & if all else suitable. NO HIGH RISE NOR FLATS ABOVE 1st FLOOR & no large estates nor any other tenancy types other than Secure or Assured. I do NOT require the RTB. Possibility that I would take age restricted/over 55's etc. tenancy.
I may have third parties interested in a multiswap so looking at these selected London areas, for them:
Islington, Westminster, Camden, Hackney, Tower Hamlets.
Ideally, wanting to move next summer (?July) but to be discussed when might be mutually agreeable.
WHAT I OFFER
My secure tenancy, 3 bedroom first floor council flat HAS the Right To Buy. I will provide a lot more info and more photos of my home, internally, upon request if genuinely interested in a possible swap but feel free to contact me initially, if you like the sound of my ad and the photos provided of the place where I live. Only the smallest bedroom is currently shown in the pics; there are two bigger, other bedrooms.
If interested in a direct or multi swap, let me know what type of tenancy/kind of property you have, how many bedrooms, is there a private garden, what floor is it on, when you would ideally like to move & state your full postcode & we can take it from there. Please give me this information in your first message to me & I will reply to let you know if I may be interested in your property, or not or if it may be suitable for a third party, in a multiswap. You MUST be allowed to take a 3 bedroom property. Please check BEFORE contacting me. Do NOT request phone calls or whatsup/text messages straight off. I think it is best we find out as much as possible, about each other's homes/areas etc. first. If compatible, we can speak on the phone, later in the process.
