Tenancy Options

Interested in renting one of our homes, but not sure where to start with different tenancy types? 

Starter Tenancy/Assured Shorthold Tenancy

This is a probationary tenancy, which runs for 12 months. After this time, it then converts to an assured tenancy, providing that no legal action has been taken against you to end your tenancy or extend the probationary period. We will also issue Assured Shorthold Tenancies for your Rent to Homebuy products.

Assured/Secure Tenancy

This is the tenancy that you will convert to if you have successfully completed the 12 month probationary Starter Tenancy / Assured Shorthold Tenancy.

Assured Shorthold Tenancy 

We would use this type of tenancy, for example, for homes in which we manage for another landlord or agency which we enter into an agreement for a specific period of time. This type of tenancy enables us to end your tenancy by obtaining a court order for possession on one of the grounds listed in Schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988.

Equitable Assured Shorthold Tenancy 

We would use this tenancy if you are under the age of 18. This is because in law someone under 18 cannot hold a legal interest in land. A Trustee will hold the legal estate for you until you reach 18 year's old. On your 18th birthday, the Trustee will automatically fall away and the legal estate will become yours.

Protected Assured Tenancy

You have this tenancy if you have transferred to one of the Group companies under a Large Scale Voluntary Transfer and enjoy preserved rights as existed with the previous Tenancy Agreement. These are no longer issued, but are in existence. 

Choice Based Lettings

We have a wide range of general housing, from studio flats for single people through to four bedroom homes for larger families. However, demand nearly always exceeds our supply and generally we have to wait for existing residents to move on before we have vacancies. 

Our properties are let via a choice based lettings scheme, please select an area below, to see what options are available.
