Dumfries and Galloway Homes

Dumfries and Galloway Homes offers mid-market residential and student accommodation, primarily in Dumfries. Further information on available properties can be found here.


HomeSwapper is the UK’s largest property swap service. The service allows tenants across the whole of the country to make a mutual exchange rather than sit on waiting or transfer lists to move elsewhere.

The online system is easy to use. You register your own property, use photographs and an in-depth description of your home. You also need to enter information about where you would like to live and the type of property you would like to move to. The system matches properties or swappers with any others that are online when criteria match up.

In Dumfries and Galloway, you can access HomeSwapper for free if you are a tenant of:

You can still use HomeSwapper if you are a tenant of DGHP. However you will be charged for using the service.

Similar to a mutual exchange, once a tenant has found someone to exchange with, both parties need to contact their landlord to complete an exchange application form. Tenants cannot exchange homes until they have received permission from their landlord.

Abbeyfield Scotland

Abbeyfield Scotland is another housing provider working in Dumfries and Galloway. Abbeyfield Scotland provides safe, secure quality accommodation where older people can maintain their independence but benefit from a little help and enjoy companionship and company – when they want it.

The accommodation is slightly different to an independent tenancy, as living in an Abbeyfield House means you have your own private en-suite accommodation, but that there is also plenty of shared spaces for dining and entertaining – plus meals are made for residents on site. In Dumfries and Galloway, Abbeyfield Scotland operates from two sites: one in Dumfries and another in Lockerbie.
