Crawley Homes’ Tenancy Policy

Tenancy Policy

Crawley Homes’ Tenancy Policy came into affect on 1 April 2013 and makes use of the options introduced by the Localism Act 2011.

The basics

The policy sets out the type of tenancies Crawley Homes will offer and the type of rent it will charge.

It introduced:

  • Flexible ( Fixed Term) tenancies
  • Social and affordable rents
  • Changes to succession rights

Take a look at the policy to find out more.

Who will be affected?

People who are already council tenants will NOT be affected by the changes in the policy. It will affect all new tenants from 01 April 2013.

Background

The need for a Tenancy Policy comes from the reforms set out in the Localism Act 2011. These reforms include the introduction of:

  • Fixed term tenancies to allow housing providers greater flexibility in making best use of their stock
  • Affordable Rent Tenure (the term affordable means up to 80% of the local market rent) to maximise rental income and in turn increase supply.

This policy sets out how Crawley Borough Council will use the range of options available to help meet the strategic aims outlined in the HRA Business Plan and the council’s Tenancy Strategy.
