If you are already a Council tenant and want to add someone to your tenancy, you will need to apply for a joint tenancy.
Assignment of tenancy

A specimen tenancy agreement issued to all new tenants from 1st April 2013.
We will generally grant permission for lodgers provided the property will not be statutorily overcrowded as defined under the Housing Act 1985.
Absence from property
It is an obligation of your secure tenancy that you notify us if you will be away from your property for 3 months or longer.
How and when you may be evicted from your council home
The Council makes every effort to allocate properties as quickly as possible once they become vacant.
Ending a tenancy
Let us know when you are planning to move and what your new address will be so that we can agree a date when the tenancy will cease.
