Taking over a tenancy
You can apply to take over the tenancy from a tenant who is moving out of the home, or no longer wants to be the tenant. (If the tenant has died see death of a tenant).
But you can only apply if:
1. the current tenant has officially told us that they want to end their tenancy - called 'giving notice'; and
2. you were living at the same address as the tenant when they 'gave notice'; and
3. you still live at that address now.
We do not legally have to agree to your request - it depends on your circumstances and whether the property could be more suitable for another type of household (like a family for instance). But we will not turn it down without a good reason.
If you want to apply to take over a tenancy please fill in our online form or contact us.
