Registered providers have to take the Tenancy Strategy into account setting their own tenancy policies.
This includes considering:
- the kinds of tenancy they grant
- the circumstances in which they'll grant a tenancy of any kind
- where they grant fixed term tenancies, the lengths of the terms
- the circumstances in which they'll grant a further tenancy, when the existing tenancy ends
The Tenancy Strategy deals with the type of tenancy which we'd like to see grant.
The Housing Allocation Policy deals with who should be allocated an affordable home.
