    Shared Flat

    Does the sentence below sound natural?

    If you are are particularly busy or you are not in the flat during the assigned week, please swap in advance with somebody else.

    Is it better to replace 'swap' with 'exchange'?


    It's going to be written on a cleaning schedule in a shared flat. There is a list of weeks and names of people in charge of the cleaning during a given week on the schedule. Since weeks are assigned to people at random I would like to add the above information on the schedule.

    'Swap' is fine, informally.

    I think swap is fine for a notice like this.
