"Free" Websites Myth
The "free" sites you may find or be offered by your landlord are not free. Your rent payments cover your landlords commercial arrangement with those providers and they recover that cost directly from your rent. (Yes you are paying for everyones membership too - even if you do not access the service yourself).
We do not operate a blanket membership service (full of fee-free hunters), or attempt to hide our charge. We know our service is much more productive our way.
The results are that ALL of our members are actively seeking to exchange right NOW, and not simply taking a service that they have no intention of accessing or using. Put simply, we do not operate a window-shopping type of service.
Detailed Exchange Info
We focus on providing as much property information as possible. We currently automatically load Google® Streetview, Bit.ly® short-url's and automatically find your address, saving you typing it.
Future plans include a markered map, showing the school performances results in the locality of where you currently live and want to live.

On April 1st 2013, new legislation came into effect, whereby anyone in social housing under-occupying their property, with one extra bedroom, will have 14% deducted from their benefit, and 25% for two or more bedrooms. This change is expected to affect 650,000 households.
Our top advice. Ask your Landlord if you are affected by the changes and join MHE so you can realign your housing arrangements, to avoid the so called "bedroom-tax".
