Our Tenancy Offer
Our minimum tenancy offer will be a 6-year fixed term tenancy that includes a probationary period of up to 18 months. After the 6 years, we will look to renew your tenancy for another 5 years subject to the terms of our tenancy policy. If you currently hold a lifetime social housing tenancy you may be eligible to keep your existing tenancy type. Your tenancy offer will be dependent upon your current tenancy status and the rental product offered. You will be notified of our tenancy offer in your firm offer letter.
Our rents are charged monthly and you will be required to make a payment when you sign the tenancy which will be calculated from the date your tenancy starts, to the end of that month. We will tell you in advance how much is required.
Restrictions on pets will apply to all homes. Permission will be required to keep pets in our properties.
To see exactly what your rights and responsibilities would be if you became an Affinity Sutton tenant, please see the sample terms and conditions here. The tenancy agreement that you receive would be dependent upon your specific circumstances. We will say clearly in our offer letter what type of tenancy we will offer and for what length of time.
The Government has recently announced changes to the way Local Housing Allowance (LHA) is paid in the social rented sector. More details can be found on the main Affinity Sutton Website.
