We are one of the Midlands' leading and most successful providers of affordable homes.

If you are successful in applying for a home with whg, you will be asked to sign a tenancy agreement.

During your sign up, we will guide you through your tenancy agreement and explain what it means for you.

Your tenancy agreement is a legal agreement between you and whg, which sets out:

  • what you must do to manage your tenancy
  • what whg will do as your landlord.

These are called responsibilities and obligations.

There are a number of types of tenancy agreement that whg may offer you. Whichever tenancy agreement you have, you must read it carefully. Your Housing Advisor can guide you through it at your welcome visit. This visit usually takes places within 6 weeks of your tenancy starting.

For more information about the tenancy types we offer, see the Tenancy Policy.
