A tenant can apply for a smaller or larger unit in order to improve their living conditions.
With the cultural realities of family closeness and the common sense of the community guiding the decision making process, some households will occasionally agree to exchange dwellings to their mutual benefit. However, the reasons for such exchanges must be deemed justified by the KMHB and the local housing committee.
A housing exchange application form is available at all our local housing offices. It must be completed and returned to the housing manager to start the exchange process.
Exchanges must absolutely be approved by the KMHB.
