We have worked with Newcastle City Council to make changes to the lease to better reflect the lives and priorities of tenants. Last summer, Newcastle City Council tenants received an “interim notice of amendment” and had the opportunity to tell us what they thought of the proposed amendments. Your feedback is also used to improve the information and assistance that tenants receive when registering and throughout the tenancy agreement, your rental agreement is a legal contract that you sign if you rent a property at Newcastle City Council. It sets the terms for your lease and clearly states what you are responsible for and what the Council is responsible for. The good news is that more than 90% of the tenants who responded in response to the proposed changes, the Council approved the new tenancy agreement. Housing Advice Centre or Shelter North East can provide someone to make your lease with you if you need help. We also take care of all aspects of your rental. That is why we have instructed Your Homes Newcastle, which also provide housing management services to Newcastle City Council, to provide a number of important services on our behalf.
