Secure Tenancy

What is a secure tenancy?

A secure tenancy has no fixed end date and you are entitled to stay in your home for as long as you keep to the terms of your tenancy agreement.  

You will have additional rights such as the Right to Buy and being able to exchange your home.

If you are offered a secure tenancy, it will become secure after the introductory period if there has been no breach of tenancy.  

If you had a secure or assured tenancy with another council or a housing association immediately before you moved into your current home it is likely you will be given a secure tenancy from the start.
