Northwards Housing manages your home, but it is owned by Manchester City Council. This means that, by law, the tenant in a Northwards home is a 'council tenant'.
You can apply to take over the tenancy from a tenant who is moving out of the home, or no longer wants to be the tenant. (If the tenant has died see death of a tenant).
But you can only apply if:
We do not legally have to agree to your request - it depends on your circumstances and whether the property could be more suitable for another type of household (like a family for instance). But we will not turn it down without a good reason.
