Your tenancy

Information relating to your tenancy.

When you begin to rent a property with us you will be asked to sign a 'Tenancy Agreement'. The 'Tenancy Agreement' sets out the rights and responsibilities of you as a tenant and us as your landlord. It also makes you a secure tenant which means that you can live in the property as long as you like unless there is a legal reason or a breach of your tenancy conditions and the Council decides to regain possession.

Conditions of Tenancy

When you sign the tenancy agreement it also means that you agree to all the terms of the tenancy, which are listed and explained in the Conditions of Tenancy. You and visitors to your home must keep to the Conditions of Tenancy, as we can take action against your tenancy if you do not.

Changes to the Tenancy Agreement

Only if the tenant(s) and the Council agree can your tenancy agreement be changed in any way. Otherwise only the court has the power to enforce changes. Please contact your Neighbourhood Officer at your local District Housing Office if your circumstances change in any way.
