Your Rights & Responsibilities as a Scottish Secure Tenant

Almost every tenant of Angus Housing Association is signed up to a Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement. This document outlines your Rights and Responsibilities as a tenant of Angus Housing Association. It is the legal contract between you as the Tenant and us as the Landlord.

Most of the information about your rights and responsibilities has been summarised in the earlier sections of this Calendar

There are, however, some other key Rights and Responsibilities introduced by the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 which you should know about.  These are detailed in this section.

YOUR TENANCY RIGHTS
  • You have the right to occupy your home without interference from the Association as long as you comply with your tenancy agreement.
  • You have a right to have your Tenancy in joint names with someone else who lives with you (this includes a same sex partner).
  • We are responsible for ensuring that your house is repaired to keep it in a tenantable condition at all times.
  • If you die, other members of your household living with you have the right to succeed to your tenancy twice.  Your Tenancy may be inherited by:-
    • Your husband or wife OR
    • Your Joint Tenant
    • Your Co-Habitee
    • Another Member of your household
    • A Live In Carer
  • You have the right to obtain copies of any of our Policies or to find out about any information we hold on you.
  • Some tenants have the right to buy their house.
YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES
  • You must occupy the house as your only home.
  • You must take reasonable care to avoid damage to the house and your neighbour’s houses
  • You must take all reasonable steps to make sure you and anyone living with you or visiting you keeps to the terms and conditions of your Tenancy Agreement.

REMEMBER

  • All of the information about your Rights and Responsibilities as a Tenant of Angus Housing Association is detailed in your copy of the full Tenancy Agreement.  If you have any queries about any of this, all you have to do is ask a Member of Staff for help or advice.
  • Alternatively, you can get help from an independent source such as a Solicitor, Law Centre, Housing Advice Centre, Citizen’s Advice Bureau, the Commission for Racial Equality or the Equal Rights Commission.  These telephone numbers are printed on the inside front cover of this Calendar.
