Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am an introductory tenant. What does this mean?
Unless you are transferring from a secure tenancy, you will start your tenancy as an 'introductory tenant'. Your introductory tenancy will last for one year. If you do not break any of the tenancy conditions during this time, you will automatically become a 'secure tenant'. If, during your introductory tenancy, you break any of the tenancy conditions, we will take action to end your tenancy. By law, during your introductory tenancy, you do not have the same rights as a 'secure tenant'. You cannot do the following:-
- apply for the right to buy your property
- vote for a change of landlord
- sub-let part of the property or take in a lodger
- apply to exchange your tenancy
