Minimum tenancies for social housing

Minimum tenancies for social housing

Minimum tenancies for social housing

Recent government legislation has ended the 'social housing for life' assumption.

But councillors on the Royal Borough's ruling cabinet agreed last night they would like to see minimum two yearly tenancies offered by the Housing Associations and registered providers who they now refer people to.

Councillors agreed they wanted  two year tenancies to be a minumum - with five year terms being the general rule.

In practice the minimum period will be three years, as the law imposes a one year introductory tenancy.
