In order to provide as many new homes as possible at council rent levels, the Council has set up a separate organisation to develop the new homes: Homes for Lambeth. This means that secure tenancies, which are the normal form of tenancy used for council properties, will not be granted. However, we understand how important security of tenure is for residents and propose to use Assured Lifetime tenancies for your new homes. The Assured Lifetime tenancies will be contracts between the landlord and tenant which set out the various rights and obligations. They can only be changed in future if both the landlord and tenant agree on the change; changes cannot be imposed by Government. The Council proposes to match your current tenancies as closely as possible in order to provide security of tenure.
You should note that the right to buy is not available under assured tenancies.
