Network Homes brings in life time tenancies

Posted 13.12.19
Network Homes: Further reading

Network Homes has decided to bring in life time tenancies for all new tenants and convert all existing fixed term tenancies.

This means it will stop giving new tenants fixed term tenancies immediately. Every new tenant of a social rent or affordable rent home will be given an assured tenancy, which lasts as long as they want it.

For existing fixed term tenants, it will look at what is the most practical way of converting their tenancies. It would prefer to convert them all soon, but it's possible that it will phase them, or wait until the end of the five-year term to renew them as assured tenancies.
