Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Assignment

Some tenants can pass their tenancy on, either while they are alive or after they have died. You need your landlord's permission for this.

Housing Executive tenants have rights which are set out in law. You are an introductory tenant for the first year of your tenancy. After 12 months you’ll become a secure tenant. Secure tenants have stronger rights than introductory tenants.

The law gives housing association tenants certain rights. Secure tenants have more rights than introductory tenants. You are an introductory tenant for the first year of your tenancy. After 12 months you’ll become a secure tenant.

You may want to add someone else's name onto your tenancy.  This could happen if you originally moved into the property as a single person, but you now have a partner.  You need to get the Housing Executive or housing association's permission to create the joint tenancy.
