The Council offer different Tenancy Agreements. If you are not transferring from a secure council tenancy or an assured housing association tenancy or subject to a fix term tenancy, you will be offered an Introductory Tenancy.
An Introductory Tenancy is a tenancy that begins with a 12month trial period and is effective from the start date of your tenancy. During the first 12 months you will have fewer rights than secure tenant and will be required to demonstrate that you can successfully manage a tenancy. After the Introductory Tenancy period has expired, we will write to you to advise that your tenancy has changed to a (secure tenancy/fixed term tenancy delete as appropriate)
The purpose of an Introductory Tenancy is to ensure that tenants are following the terms of their tenancy agreements, so it is important that you keep a copy safe and you understand your agreement. Please let the Council know if you are unsure about anything or are having any difficulties. If you breach your agreement, action will be taken against you. If the breaches of the agreement are persistent and serious, the Council can extend your Introductory Tenancy or apply to the County Court to bring your tenancy to an end.
The Council offers support to tenants who may be suffering difficulties in their tenancy and will visit you a three times throughout the course of your Introductory Tenancy to ensure that all is well in your tenancy, to try and assist in resolving any issues that may have occurred but also to ensure that the tenancy agreement is being followed.
If you accept the offer of this tenancy you will be required to pay rent in advance upon signing for the property.
