Review of the Secure Tenancy Agreement

The report details the proposed revisions to the terms and conditions of the Council’s secure tenancy agreement in response to significant changes to national policy including the Housing and Regeneration Act 2011, the Localism Act 2011, Social Housing Fraud Act 2013, welfare reform and revised Right to Buy. In addition the housing landlord service has undergone a fundamental restructure, moving away from generic housing management roles to specialist teams across the Council. This means that there have been significant changes to procedures, including tenancy management, tenancy sustainment, antisocial behaviour and tenant involvement.
