Council Housing - Your Homes Newcastle

Council housing is managed on behalf of Newcastle City Council by Your Homes Newcastle (link to website). We set Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to monitor YHN’s performance. 

We also make decisions on how your rent is used to invest in services, Council homes and estates, and oversee the development of new homes.

Right to Manage  

Council Tenants with a Secure Tenancy have the Right to Manage.  

Tenant Management Organisations (TMOs) are how Council tenants can take on collective responsibility for managing their homes. TMOs can take different forms and sizes, from managing a handful of properties to large estates.  

The services managed by the TMO might include day-to-day repairs, allocations and lettings, tenancy management, cleaning and caretaking, and rent collection. The TMO will receive funding from the Council to deliver these services.
