Who can be a joint tenant?

To become a joint tenant you must be a ‘qualifying joint tenant’. This means you must be a spouse, civil partner, or partner, including a same-sex partner.

We will issue a joint tenancy to new tenants if the local authority, or other referring body, nominates two people who are living together as a married couple, civil partnership or are living together as partners, including same-sex partners.

We will not grant joint tenancies to more than two people or to family members.

For more information please email us or call us on 0300 456 2099.
