When everyone has a home

Housing advice for Northern Ireland

NIHE and tenant responsibilities

It is important for you to know

  • your responsibilities to the Housing Executive, and
  • the Housing Executive's responsibilities to you

These are explained in a leaflet on the Housing Executive's website

It's important that you know and understand what your responsibilities are to the Housing Executive.

When you rent from the Housing Executive or a housing association, your landlord has certain responsibilities. 

You have to pay rent to your landlord. You may be able to get help from benefits to pay this if you are on a low income.
