Tenancy Types

We have three different types of tenancies available, but only one will apply to you. Halton Housing customers can either be on a normal Assured Tenancy, an Assured Tenancy with a Preserved Right to Buy or a Starter Tenancy. You can find out more about each tenancy type and your rights as a tenant by reading our Customer Handbook.

What kind of tenancy do I have?

Want to know what kind of tenancy you have? Look no further.

An assured tenancy with the Preserved Right to Buy

This type of tenancy applies to all those people who had secure tenancies with Halton Borough Council and transferred to Halton Housing on 5th December 2005.

A normal assured tenancy

This type of tenancy applies to people who were housed by Halton Housing from another social landlord after 5th December 2005, and already had this type of tenancy. It does not have the Preserved Right to Buy attached to it.

A starter tenancy

This will apply to all new customers of Halton Housing who have never had a tenancy before. It effectively means that you will have a ‘probationary’ tenancy for your first 12 months with Halton Housing. If there are no problems during this time, your tenancy will automatically convert to a normal assured tenancy as described above.
