Tenant's handbook

Our council housing handbook contains information that is likely to be useful to council tenants, covering all aspects of their tenancy with us.

The handbook should be read in conjunction with the tenancy agreement.

The handbook is presented as a series of web pages. If you need to print information from the handbook, you can go to the section you need, select print, then preview the pages and choose which one(s) you want to print.

Order a copy

If you want a printed version of the full council housing handbook, you can contact us and we will send you one.

We refresh the contents of the printed version of the handbook every three months, so that they match the online version. This means the printed version won't always be as up-to-date as the online version. The printed version shows the date the handbook was last updated.

Sheltered housing handbook

A separate handbook is available for tenants living in council-owned sheltered housing. See the webpage: Sheltered housing.
