The tenancy agreement is a legal contract between Crawley Borough Council and each tenant. It defines the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
It is important that you understand it and that if you break any terms of this contract, the Council may commence legal proceedings which could result in you losing your home.
Please contact our Housing Officers or seek independent legal advice if there is anything you do not understand about your tenancy agreement.
Most tenants have one of these tenancy agreements. If you are not sure what type of tenancy you have please contact your housing officer .
If you live in one of our new homes at Forge Wood or Gales Place or Apex apartments you will have a slightly different tenancy agreement with some extra terms and conditions.
If you need a copy of your tenancy agreement, please contact your housing officer .
Council tenants can have different tenancies which give different rights and responsibilities.
Our Tenancy Policy sets out the types of tenancies offered to new tenants, this was agreed in February 2013 and makes use of the options introduced by the Localism Act 2011.
If you have a joint tenancy, each tenant is responsible for meeting the conditions of the tenancy (including paying the rent) and each has the same rights and responsibilities.
If one of the tenants on the joint tenancy wishes to leave a property, you must let us know in writing. We will then contact you to discuss what options are available to you.
An important aspect of the Tenancy Agreement is how people live with their neighbours. We all want to live in a place that is safe, clean and free from nuisance, by being a good neighbour and having consideration for others, you can help to achieve this.
To help you enjoy living in your home the council has certain expectations of all of its tenants and these are set out in the tenancy agreement.
In 2013 we reviewed our introductory/secure tenancy agreement and consulted with tenants about the proposed changes.
