When everyone has a home

Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Tenant Rights

You can buy all or part of your home. Regardless of how much of the property you buy, you will become responsible for all repairs and maintenance on the property once the sale has completed.

Your rights as a Housing Assocation tenant should be explained in your tenancy agreement and your tenant handbook.  Housing associations are regulated by the Department of Communities in Northern Ireland and registered housing associations have to comply with the guidelines set out by this government department. 

Ако вашия наем започва на или след 1 април 2007 г., вие имате някои допълнителни основни права, дори когато нямате наемен договор.

Existuje niekoľko základných práv, na ktoré zákon všetkých nájomníkov oprávňuje. Vaša nájomná zmluva vám nemôže uprieť vaše základné práva.

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.

All private tenants have some basic legal rights. Your other rights can depend on when your tenancy started and what your tenancy agreement says.
