Your tenancy agreement
We will provide you with a written agreement that sets out your rights and obligations and our rights and obligations. We will explain the agreement to you when you move into your new home.
The majority of our residents have a “tenancy agreement”. A few residents in supported housing have a “licence agreement”.
Your tenancy may be an assured tenancy, an assured shorthold tenancy or a starter tenancy. Our tenancy policy sets out the circumstances in which we will grant each type of agreement. We aim to target resources at those in housing need, make best use of our properties and ensure that they are occupied in accordance with our charitable objectives.
Listed below are the different types of tenancies. Please click on the link to find out more.
