Introductory tenancies

The council uses introductory tenancies to help it deal with any anti-social behaviour, rent arrears and other serious tenancy problems caused by new tenants.

Introductory tenancies make it easier for us to take action against new tenants who break their tenancy agreements and who might cause problems to their neighbours.

We investigate complaints against introductory tenants in a similar way to complaints against other tenants but if we consider that a complaint is justified we can fast track possession action against them.
