Tenancy policy

What tenancies will we offer new tenants?

From 1 July 2013 most new council tenants are granted a five-year flexible tenancy however some tenants continue to be granted a secure council tenancy.

We will inform all new tenants of the type of tenancy they will be offered before they sign a Tenancy Agreement. This will be in the form of a letter. The Tenancy Agreement will clearly state the duration of the tenancy, together with details of the process for reviewing and ending tenancies, as set out in this policy.
