Council tenants and leaseholders
Information for council tenants and leaseholders who live in houses, flats and sheltered accommodation.
Under the Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016, tenants are now known as contract-holders. We will use the term contract-holders in formal and legal documents and communications. However, in our general information (including on the website) we will still refer to contract-holders as tenants. If you have any queries about the changes, please contact: your area housing office; Alison Winter (Tenant Participation Officer) on 01792 635043 | 07775221453; or email email@example.com
