13. Assisting tenants at the end of a flexible tenancy

All tenants whose flexible tenancies are not going to be renewed can contact our housing needs team for assistance if required.

If the tenancy is not being reissued because the property is going to be under occupied, we will assist the outgoing tenant to access other suitable accommodation and this may well be by moving to smaller council or other registered provider accommodation. In these cases tenants will be eligible for assistance from our downsizing scheme.

We will give at least six months notice that the tenancy is coming to an end, and a formal notice seeking possession will be served at least two months prior to the end date.

At the end of the tenancy we will carry out a pre-termination visit.

 We will give advice and assistance in line with our current policies and procedures.
