If you have married or entered into a civil partnership with your new partner you need to fill in this application form and send this with a copy of your marriage/civil partnership certificate.
If you are not married then we would normally only agree to add the partner to the tenancy if they have been resident at the property for at least year. To do this fill this application form and send this in with proof of residence at the address for one year (for example utility bill, phone bill, bank statement etc).
We cannot remove the name of a joint tenant from the tenancy without their written permission or a court order. If this is the situation please make an appointment to discuss your request with your Housing Officer and seek independent legal advice.
We will assess each case individually, providing support and advice and look at the issues such as whether the person left living in the property has children living at the property and if the tenancy was a joint tenancy.
We do not normally agree for a relative to be added to the tenancy except in exceptional circumstances.
We would not normally agree to any amendment to the tenancy whilst arrears are outstanding unless there are exceptional circumstances.
We will require you to bring originals of Marriage/Civil Partnership Certificates or Deed Polls for name changes to one of our local offices.
