Converted contracts: temporary accommodation

If you moved into emergency or temporary accommodation before 1 December 2022 because you are homeless then you might have a converted standard occupation contract, a ‘license’ or ‘common law’ tenancy. Select the option below which applies to you to find out what kind of renting agreement you have. 

If neither of the options below apply to you then you probably have a licence or common law tenancy.

If you live in Bed and Breakfast accommodation that is privately owned and managed, you will not have an occupation contract. Please visit our Temporary accommodation: licences and common law tenancies advice page.
