The Council introduced flexible tenancies for all new tenants in January 2013.
Flexible tenancies are expected to last for five years but can be renewed for further five year periods if the tenant still needs social housing and their present home meets their family requirements. The majority of tenancies are likely to be renewed unless the tenants circumstances have changed. If their circumstances have changed the tenant may be asked to move to another more suitable home. Such circumstances might be a single person living in a family sized home or a tenant with sufficient income to rent privately or buy their own home.
Tenants will have plenty of notice as reviews will be carried out 6-9 months before their tenancy is due to end and help and advice will be provided to anyone who needs it.
The introduction of flexible tenancies does not affect any existing tenants who currently hold a lifetime tenancy.
