Moving into your home

When you move into your home it will have been checked to make sure that it meets the standards agreed with other tenants and any essential repairs will have been completed.

Once your tenancy has started we will arrange to visit you within a couple of weeks or so to check you have settled in and to explain more about what it means to be a tenant of Alliance Homes.

Your Tenancy Agreement is a legal contract and amongst other things means that you are require to:

But we want our relationship with you to be based on more than that.

We believe you should also make your own positive contribution to your community by working or training, by helping others and simply by being a good tenant and neighbour - not just because your tenancy agreement requires it but because it encourages other people to do the same.

If you have any difficulties or questions about your tenancy we will assist where possible. Depending on the nature of the problem, this is very likely to involve other agencies who can offer specific help and support.  They will use a 'support plan' that sets out the type of help that can be provided, what issues are going to be tackled, what you will need to do yourself to ensure a positive outcome and the timescale within which this should be achieved.

If we have no concerns about how you’re getting on, we will look to convert your tenancy after six months. But if you do breach the terms of your tenancy agreement while you have a starter tenancy, we can give you two months notice that you must leave and a court will automatically give possession of your home back to us.
