Starter Tenancy Policy

This policy sets out Bernicia’s approach to the use and management of Starter tenancies. Starter tenancies enable early interventions to be made in order to uphold the conditions of tenancy and protect neighbourhoods from anti-social behaviour.

It applies to new tenants of Bernicia Group except where:

The tenant is already an assured or secure tenant, this may be a tenant transferring within our own stock or of another registered provider or council.
The property to be let or re-let is designated as extra care accommodation.
