Tenancy Sustainment and Pre Eviction Protocol Adopted
Our new Tenancy Sustainment and Eviction Prevention Protocol sets out the range of support we offer to tenants to sustain their tenancy and be able to live securely in their own home; along with our commitment to only take proceedings to evict, as a last resort, once all other options have been exhausted.
By taking this approach our aim is to support tenants to maintain a good tenancy and be happy in their home and minimise the need to take court action; this will also avoid passing on associated court costs to the tenants or tenants losing their home wherever possible. In return tenants will be expected to work with us or other support providers, set up and maintain an agreed payment plan to clear their rent arrears.
