Tenancy agreement

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 your tenancy agreement. If you break any terms of this contract, we may commence legal proceedings which could result in you losing your home.

Contact your Housing Officers or seek independent legal advice if there is anything you do not understand about your tenancy agreement.

Tenancy agreements

Your tenancy agreement will depend on what type of tenancy you have, what the start date of your tenancy was and in some cases, your address if your home was built after 2015.

If you are unsure which tenancy agreement you have or you need a copy, contact your Housing Officer.

Most tenants whose original tenancy start date was before April 2013 and new tenants in sheltered are likely to have this type of agreement.

Homes with solar panels and electricity monitoring

From March 2015 to 1 June 2019 houses in Douster Crescent, Waterfall Crescent and Breezehurst Drive in Bewbush had an additional schedule added to their tenancy agreement to cover solar panels.

The following tenancy agreements contain schedules for solar panels and energy monitoring. These are used when homes have solar panels and/or energy monitoring equipment fitted. These include Lonsdale Court and Barnfield House.

Other agreements

You may have an Insecure Tenancy Agreement if we have accepted a homeless duty towards you but you have not yet been offered a permanent home.

You will have one of these if you have made a homeless application and have been offered accommodation in one of our temporary accommodation hostels.
