Easy Read Tenancy Agreement

Ace Anglia worked with Orwell Housing to create an accessible guide to a tenancy. The document explains:

  • An explanation of what a tenancy is.

  • What is included/not included in a tenancy agreement.

  • A place to fill in personal details about your tenancy.

The document is editable for you to write down details of your tenancy.  You can change the words and pictures to make it personal to you.

The guide is available from the Suffolk Ordinary Lives website: Tenancy Agreement - an easy-read guide
