Housing advice for Northern Ireland

NIHE and tenant responsibilities

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

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.
