We need to know about the following changes:
• If someone has moved out
• If someone has moved in
• If you want to keep a pet, such as a cat or dog
• If you’ve got married
• If your financial circumstances have changed
Applying for a Joint Tenancy
If you are a sole tenant and want someone to move in, or you're wanting an existing member of the household to become a joint tenant, you can ask us about this. This gives you, and the person who becomes the joint tenant, equal rights and responsibility for the tenancy and property.
Transferring the Tenancy to Another Person
Your tenancy can be transferred to another person by assignation or succession.
• Assignation is when you transfer the tenancy to another member of your household
• Succession is when the tenancy is inherited after a tenant dies
In both cases, there are certain conditions that need to be met, including letting us know about those living with you.
Your Neighbourhood Officer will be able to support and give advice on any of these matters.
Ending your Tenancy
If you intend to move out you must end your tenancy by giving us at least 28 days' notice.
Your rent account will need to be paid up to the end of your tenancy and your home left in a good condition.
On receiving your Notice we'll be in touch to let you know the next steps and to arrange an assessment of your property. Take a look at Moving Out & Our GREAT Goodbye for more information.
