New law, standards and policy give social landlords the flexibility to grant periodic or fixed term tenancies; to charge social, affordable or intermediate rents; to preface different types of tenancy with starter or trial periods. How will we utilise the new options to best meet local housing need and are we ready for the new legal complexities?
