The Housing Executive performs identity checks when you sign up for a new lease or transfer or exchange real estate. Your or your landlord`s right to terminate a lease and your right to stay and be protected from eviction depend on the type of tenancy you have. If you have this type of rental, your rent cannot increase unless you agree. But it`s easier to chase you away – the housing company or local authority needs a court order to do this, but they can get one without any reason to prove it. If you are not entitled to an estate, the landlord can nevertheless grant you a new lease. This is called “policy succession”. Your landlord can provide you with more information and advice. If you are a new tenant of a housing company, you may be offered a start-up rental agreement – normally for a period of 12 months. The goal is to prove that you are a responsible tenant before the housing company offers you a guaranteed lease. Your starter rental contract can be easily interrupted if you break the rental conditions.
Rental conditions are “rules” about living in the property – such as the one-time payment of rent. We will deal with offences with determination, but fairly. You have a property guarantee, which means you have the right to stay at home as long as you comply with the rental conditions. If you violate any of these terms, we will take steps to deal with the situation. In some severe cases, you may lose your home. This fact sheet is intended for tenants of social housing owners (including boards and housing corporations). It explains some of your rights as a tenant. It does not cover the occupancy rights of long-term tenants and condominiums of tenants of social housing. As a rule, after successfully concluding a starter rental agreement, you will be a safe tenant. This trial period is intended to prove that you are a responsible tenant before the housing company offers you a secure rental agreement. If you are disabled, your landlord may need to change the lease if a contract term means you are worse off than someone without your disability.
When an introductory lease is concluded, it usually becomes a safe lease. However, this will not happen if they have taken steps to hunt you down or if they decide to extend the introduction phase. Safe tenants can only be evacuated if there is a legal reason, such as for example. B not pay rent, damage to the property or antisocial behaviour. . . .
