Your tenancy agreement outlines your responsibilities as a tenant. Most of these responsibilities are common sense and relate to how to pay your rent, keeping your property well maintained and not causing your neighbours any form of nuisance.

If you break any of the responsibilities outlined in your tenancy agreement Wolverhampton Homes will:

  • Investigate and talk to you about the breach and give you advice on what you should do to put it right
  • Give help, advice and support to you if you are having difficulty in managing your tenancy

If we have contacted you about a breach of tenancy please make sure you contact us. We are usually able to work with you to resolve the matter and further action will not be needed.

If you do not respond to any support or advice that we give you and the breach of tenancy remains, we will take legal action. This can include:

  • Notice of Seeking Possession (secure tenants) or Notice of Possession Proceedings (introductory tenants)
  • Demoted tenancy (secure tenants)
  • Injunctions
  • Eviction

Please check your tenancy agreement for further information or speak to your Tenancy Officer.

Abuse towards staff +

Your tenancy agreement states that you must make sure anyone living with you or visiting you behaves themselves. We keep a record of potentially violent or aggressive tenants and customers and if the aggressive behaviour continues you could lose your home.

Any incidents against our staff will be reported and may be recorded and shared with other organisations like contractors, the police or the council.
