Fixed term tenancies

The government have announced that in future new secure tenancies in England will be granted for a fixed period of between two and ten years (longer if the household contains a child under nine years old). The change will be introduced via the Housing and Planning Act and relates specifically to council tenants, however it is possible that similar measures will also be introduced for housing associations via changes to regulations. The expansion of fixed term tenancies will mean significant changes for many organisations and CIH can help you to prepare for and manage their implementation.
