If you have any further questions regarding your rental agreement, please contact us. Minor rentals: Tenants aged 16 or 17 can enter into a periodic short-term rental agreement with Yorkshire Housing. This lease is held in trust by a third party until the tenant reaches the age of 18. Before moving to a new home, all our tenants must sign a rental agreement. The lease is a legal document that sets out in detail what is expected of you and what you can expect from Yorkshire Housing. You start as a “startup tenant”. If you meet the responsibilities set out in your lease, it will take 12 months, during which time you will then become an insured tenant. However, if you do not respect your responsibilities, the start-up lease can be extended for another six months, or we can even inform you and ask you to leave the property. These key rental terms are published for reference only and do not constitute a legally binding contract, your actual lease is a legal document, a copy of which must be kept in a safe place. Below you will find the most important terms of our start-up rental agreement (secure short-term rental) and our insured rental agreement. These are the most common types of agreements we use, although there are other types of agreements in some areas.
If you decide to leave your home with the South Yorkshire Housing Association and end your tenancy, it is important that we know this in writing at least four weeks in advance. If you do not comply with the above responsibilities, you will break your lease and we may even take legal action against you. 11) MyLYHA – MyLYHA is our customer login section of the website.
