Information for Council Tenants
Information and guidance for council tenants including paying rent, accessing the Housing Online portal, tenant's handbook, repairs and maintenance and tenant participation.
Our tenants should be involved in the housing services they receive. We ask you to share your views and take part in decision-making. We want to work alongside you to provide for your community. Taking part gives you a great voice.
We actively keep tenants up to date of any developments that are happening. We also seek the views of those we come in contact with to allow us to improve the service.
As your landlord, West Lothian Council has a legal duty to ensure that gas appliances, gas piping and flues provided for tenants use are well maintained and safe. This legal duty is set out in the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
The Council strongly advises all tenants to take out a contents insurance policy to cover your personal belongings. If you do not take out contents insurance, and something happens, then you risk losing all your belongings and not having the money to replace or repair them
