The majority of new council tenants receive an introductory tenancy for the first year. Once they have completed the introductory tenancy to our satisfaction, tenants receive a secure tenancy.
Secure tenancies offer additional rights, including the right to buy and the right to exchange.
Providing tenants do not breach the tenancy conditions, a secure tenant can usually keep their tenancy for life.
All new tenants receive a copy of the council's Tenant Handbook.
