We will always check your lease before determining the authorization of assignment or succession. Safe rentals have been for almost 3 decades the standard rental agreement for tenants with a general need. However, the lack of social housing and a change of government in 2010 called into question the concept of lifetime rentals. The government`s response was the introduction of flexible leases in the Localism Act 2011. These give councils the power to grant fixed-term leases (normally between 2 and 5 years). Degraded rents were also introduced by the 1996 law, which gives social landlords the power to downgrade safe or secure rentals in cases of anti-social behaviour. If the court accepts this request, the seniority guarantee for this lease will be removed for 12 months. If the resident continues to exhibit anti-social behaviour during the demotion period, the lessor is free to terminate the rental relationship with the corresponding notice period. Conversely, if the tenant manages to respect his lease for this period, the lease is converted into a fully secure or secure status at the end of the demotion period. Information on the transfer of a lease during a tenant`s lifetime Prior to the entry into force of the Localism Act in 2011, the Housing Corporations Directive, according to the tenancy standard, was that insured periodic rental contracts were not awarded to tenants with a general need, except in exceptional circumstances.
The current situation is that tenants with collective needs should benefit either from a periodically insured rental contract, or from a lease for a fixed minimum period of five years, or, exceptionally, from a lease with a minimum duration of two years. As a result, many housing companies now offer temporary rental contracts (guaranteed shorthold) for 5 years instead of guaranteed rental contracts. The Council must inform you and prove to the court that there is a legal reason for your expulsion. One of these reasons would be rent arrears, violent behavior, use of the property for illegal activities and other similar serious violations of the agreement. You will have the opportunity to defend your case, but you must be rushed into your appeal. Secure short-term leases always start with a fixed term. Hence the “secure” part. The fixed term is clearly described in the rental agreement.. . . .
