This page contains useful information for tenants regarding their homes.

Tenancy Agreements

A tenancy agreement is a legally binding document.  It sets out your rights and responsibilities as a tenant of Broxtowe Borough Council and also Broxtowe Borough Council's rights and responsibilities as your landlord.

You will be asked to sign your tenancy agreement when you sign up to a new property.  It is important that you keep this document in a safe place as you may need to refer to it throughout your tenancy.

Changing the Name on Tenancy Agreements, Due to Separation, Marriage, Death etc

Please contact the Neighbourhoods Services team with details of the changes you wish to make.  A member of the team may contact you if they require further information.

Garden Maintenance Scheme

The Council offers assistance to tenants who are not able to maintain their garden, through the Garden Maintenance Scheme - which applies to tenants who are over 60 and/or are disabled.

The scheme offers multiple cuts of gardens and hedges throughout the year; information about when the cuts will take place when you have been accepted onto the scheme.

You may be asked to provide proof of eligibility to support and verify your application.

If you live in Independent Living, your gardens will be maintained through the scheme.

Permission for Pets

The Council requests that tenants who wish to keep pets in their home put in a request by emailing Housing, using the details below. Please include your name, address and the type of animal you wish to keep.  The Housing Department will respond to your request in writing.

The Council will not reasonably withhold permission for requests it receives but if you live on certain Independent Living schemes, permission will be withheld.

Property Alterations/Improvements

You must make a request to make alterations by emailing Housing using the details below.  Please include your name, address and the type of work you want to carry out in your request.  The Housing Department will respond to your request in writing.
