One member of the Housing Options Panel (HOP) posted the following
RE: introductory tenants
According to the Introductory Tenancy Agreement currently available online from NBC, tenants still on Introductory Tenancies have no right to vote in a ballot on transfer. Is that correct? Is that fair? Can it be changed? If NBC allowed introductory tenants to vote would it have legal standing?
It seems most unjust to make decisions on someone’s future without letting them have a say, when the only difference between them and a Secure tenant could be a matter of a month or so. And given I’ve met one tenant still on an Introductory Tenancy after 18 months thanks to an admin oversight, how robust could NBC’s assessment be of who exactly is and isn’t a permitted voter or not?
The ITA posted a response, which concurs with my understanding.
I have explained that I was of the understanding that this issue was made known to NBC some months ago? And was given assurance that it was going to be sorted?
