Qualifying Occupier Questionnaire

Qualifying Occupier Questionnaire

Normally at this time of year we would send you out a Qualifying Occupier questionnaire to complete with your contact details and a list of all those people you previously advised us are living at the property.

It is important that this information is kept up to date because, under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014, we can only, for example, amend your tenancy from a single to a joint tenancy if the proposed joint tenant has lived at the address as their principal home for the 12 months before you apply.  The start date for this 12 month period is from the date you advised us, not the date that they moved in.  The same applies if you are looking to assign your tenancy to another person who is currently living at the property or if there were succession issues should you pass away, even if it is a family member.

It also helps if we are trying to provide information on benefits, housing issues etc.

This year, rather than sending these forms out, members of our Housing Team will be calling you over the next few weeks to check the information we currently hold and to update our records accordingly.

We look forward to speaking with you and thank you for your co-operation in the matter.
