Advice for Housing Association tenants
Housing Association tenants may be introductory tenants or secure tenants. You'll be an introductory tenant for your first 12 months as a tenant of a social landlord, like the Housing Executive or a housing association. If there haven't been any problems with your tenancy during that 12 month period you'll become a secure tenant and have much stronger legal rights. It's important that you understand, not just your rights, but also your responsibilities to the housing association.
