Tenants

You can find out information about your tenancy and services on this page.

Your tenancy agreement

Your tenancy agreement sets out what we, the landlord, must do and what you, the tenant, must do.

Conditions in your tenancy agreement

Your tenancy agreement also sets out conditions such as rules on keeping pets and anti-social behaviour.

If you break the conditions of your tenancy agreement, or allow other members of your household or your visitors to break the conditions, we may take legal action against you. This can include evicting you from your home.

Types of tenancy

If you are a council tenant you will usually have one of two types of tenancy:

  • a secure tenancy
  • an introductory tenancy.

The type of tenancy you have depends on your circumstances and on legal rules. It will also affect your rights as a tenant.

If you do not know what type of tenancy you have, look at the agreement you signed at the start of your tenancy.

All tenancy agreements insist that the tenancy property is your main home.

If this is not the case, or if you sublet the tenancy property to someone else, you may stop being a secure or introductory tenant and we can then bring your tenancy agreement to an end by serving a notice.
