This guide will help to inform tenants, not only about what they should expect from their landlord and / or agent, but also their rights and responsibilities as a tenant.

The guide is primarily intended to be read by tenants at the start of their tenancy. It has deliberately been designed and developed to cover the basic need to know information for all tenants, irrespective of their reasons for renting a property. It has been kept relatively short to encourage tenants to read it all, without feeling it is not relevant to them. It is therefore focussed on key tenancy issues. However, it also provides signposting to other sources of information where appropriate. The guide will also be supplemented by information on the scheme’s web site (external link).
