L&Q has published its Fixed Term Tenancy (FTT) research as it begins converting 6,000 residents onto assured tenancies.

It has published the report to share their findings with other housing associations, in a bid to encourage more security in social housing.

L&Q is delivering on its promise to provide more security to its social rented residents and has now written to residents to give them the option of switching to assured tenancies. It as also established a new team to ensure the conversions are smooth and efficient for residents.

L&Q announced plans to abolish FTTs last September to provide more security for their residents. In November it started offering assured tenancies to all new residents and committed to converting the majority of its social rented fixed term tenants by April 2019.

L&Q is also looking at other areas where the existing system can be improved to make it easier for residents to move.
