Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Housing association and tenant responsibilities

While your housing association has certain responsibilities to you, you also have certain responsibilities. These should be outlined in your tenancy agreement and your tenant's handbook.

Your responsibilities are explained in your tenancy agreement and your tenancy handbook. Your landlord could try to end your tenancy if you aren't doing something you are responsible for.

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.
