A ‘Tenancy Agreement’ is a very important legal contract which sets out your rights and responsibilities as a tenant and the rights and responsibilities of Pine Court Housing as your landlord.
This means that you have security of tenure as an assured tenant, so long as you occupy the premises as your only or principal home.
While the tenancy remains an assured tenancy, we can only end it by obtaining a Court Order for possession on one of the grounds listed in schedule 2 of the Housing Act 1988 as amended from time to time.
You can stay in your home for as long as you choose, but you must keep to the conditions of your tenancy agreement.
You can preview a copy of a Pine Court tenancy agreement here:
Our Tenant Handbook covers everything you need to know about your tenancy.
The handbook features useful information on managing your money, your responsibilities as a tenant and ways in which you can get involved in your local community.
You will also find details of your rights as a Pine Court customer and what to do if repairs are required in your home.
