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.
