Changing your tenancy

Someone moving into your home

You need our written permission before you can take someone in to live with you either as a member of your household or as a lodger. You will need to give us details of who you want to take in to your home and in the case of a lodger, how much rent you want to charge. Any other joint tenant, partner or person living with you must also give their written agreement. We will contact them to arrange this.

If you want to add someone to your tenancy agreement, you should complete the form on our adding someone to your tenancy agreement information page.

As the tenant, you will still be responsible for keeping your home in good condition and for paying the rent. You will also be responsible for the behaviour of the person when they are in and around your home.

Completing this application form does not mean we will give permission but we will only refuse if there is good reason to do so. We will let you know within 28 days. 

It is important you have read the above information if you are thinking about any change to your tenancy. You should read A guide for Council tenants page.

The person who wants to move in with you also has to apply. If they have a landlord we will contact them for a reference.
