Managing your Tenancy

The Tenancy Agreement you sign at the beginning of your tenancy is a legal document and it forms the framework of rights and responsibilities specified between Lochaber Housing Association and you. On signing this document, you are agreeing to certain conditions that will help you get the most enjoyment from being a Lochaber Housing Association tenant.

We want you to stay in your home without unnecessary interruption or interference from us, provided you comply with our tenancy conditions. You are required to live in and look after the property that has been let to you. If you go away for a lengthy period (e.g. more than two weeks), it is essential you inform us in writing as to who will hold keys for emergencies (such as burst pipes) and how rent will be paid.

If we need to access your home we will always have a good reason. You will be given a minimum of 24 hours’ notice unless there is an emergency and we need to gain access immediately. The emergency services will always be notified if access is required in an emergency situation.

Your Tenancy Agreement Information Sheet is packed with lots of important information about your tenancy. You can either download a copy, or alternatively contact your Housing Officer and they can send one to you.

If you have a Scottish Secure Tenancy agreement with us, The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 will make changes to Scottish secure tenancy rights.  A summary of these changes can be downloaded.
