Your Tenancy Agreement

You get your tenancy agreement when you start your tenancy with Basildon Council.

Your Tenancy Agreement is a legal document and explains:

  • your rights and responsibilities as the tenant
  • the Council's rights and responsibilities as the landlord.

By signing the Tenancy Agreement you enter into a contract with Basildon Council and agree to keep to the tenancy conditions as set out in the Tenancy Agreement.

It is important that you understand what these conditions are, because if you break them you could lose your home.

The conditions set out in the Tenancy Agreement include the following:

  • Our responsibilities
  • Paying your rent
  • Using your home
  • Making changes to your tenancy
  • Ending your tenancy
  • Repairs and alterations
  • When we can charge you for repairs
  • Anti-social behaviour.

A copy of the new Tenancy Agreement containing revised conditions was sent to all our customers on 7th April 2008.

Changes to your Tenancy Agreement

If the Council needs to change the terms of your tenancy agreement, we will give you notice of the change.

If the change affects all tenants, the Council will consult with tenants and provide an explanation of the reasons for the change. The Council must consider any comments it receives during the consultation period.
