Advice for Housing Association tenants
Lots of people are struggling to manage with housing issues because of the coronavirus crisis. Check out our Coronavirus section for information and advice on common problems, including help to pay your rent and mortgage, eviction and repairs.
Housing Association tenants may be introductory tenants or secure tenants. You'll be an introductory tenant for your first 12 months as a tenant of a social landlord, like the Housing Executive or a housing association. If there haven't been any problems with your tenancy during that 12 month period you'll become a secure tenant and have much stronger legal rights. It's important that you understand, not just your rights, but also your responsibilities to the housing association.
