What Is A Housing Association Tenancy?
If you live in the UK and you are in need of housing them, you might benefit from a housing association tenancy. Housing Association is housing owned by social landlords. This means they are independent, non-profit landlords that are focused on making sure everyone who needs it can have access to housing.
Housing association tenancies make sure that all the money they make goes back to the people who need it and the money you pay in rent goes straight back into helping to keep your home running and building new homes so that everyone can have affordable quality housing.

What Types of Housing Association Tenancy Are There?
There are several kinds of housing association tenancies available out there but here at Accent Housing we commonly use the following types of housing association tenancies.
Starter Tenancy: This is the type of tenancy we issue for new tenants. To start with, your first tenancy will initially be for just 12 months. Then, providing there are no issues or significant breaches of your tenancy agreement, this can be promoted to a full assured tenancy.
Assured Tenancy: This is our most common type of tenancy and will start after your starter tenancy. The rent for your home will be set at the start of your tenancy and will be reviewed once a year. The date of your rent review is detailed in your Tenancy Agreement alongside details of how your rent will increase. We must abide by your Tenancy Agreement and the rules set down by the government. The government sets the formula we use for calculating the rent we charge you each year. The formula we use to calculate the rent increase is based on the consumer price index (CPI) for September 2019, which is 1.7% plus 1%.
