Prospective Tenants


NB Housing  allocates its properties in accordance with the Housing Selection Scheme, which is approved by Department for Communities. The scheme has been devised to be fair and open, to offer applicants choice in where they want to live.

Following the successful completion of your one year introductory tenancy, as a tenant of NB Housing you have security of tenure. This means that your tenancy cannot be ended without an application being made to the Courts.

Such action would only be taken in very exceptional circumstances such as deliberate non-payment of rent and only after having taken every opportunity to resolve the problem with you. The full grounds on which the Association can apply to the court to recover possession of a property are contained in Housing Order (NI) 1983 and your Tenancy Agreement.
