Tenancy policy

5.7. Use and occupation

  1. 5.7. Use and occupation

    1. In some cases a household will be allowed to stay in a property following the end of the tenancy (and there is no right of succession) or where a joint tenancy has been ended by one of the joint tenants but the other former joint tenant has been left in occupation. They are not tenancies and the occupiers have no rights of tenancy.

      This allows Housing Options to consider the housing need of that household in accordance with the Council's Housing Allocation Scheme and subsequently support them with accommodation pending rehousing in an appropriate property as long as the normal conditions of a tenancy are maintained.
