The Rules of Sheltered Tenancies
Sheltered tenants have the same secure tenancies as other council tenants. However, there are a few differences:
- Sheltered tenants cannot buy their properties under the government's `right to buy' law.
- Sheltered tenants will not normally be able to pass on or assign their tenancy. But we may allow a succession of tenancy in special cases.
- Sheltered tenants must make sure that no paraffin, petroleum, bottled gas or any heater that burns these fuels is used or stored in their property.
