INTRODUCTION

Cork City Council is pleased to be able to give you this copy of the Tenant Handbook. As your landlord Cork City Council is taking this opportunity to remind you of the range of services available to you as one of our tenants. This handbook is an important element in the flow of information between Cork City Council and its tenants. It allows us to give you useful and better information about Cork City Council and its many services. It is important to note that the content of this Tenant’s Handbook is included by way of guidelines to explain some matters pertaining to your tenancy.

To each Tenant of Cork City Council

Cork City Council has for over a century been providing houses for people. Over the years more than 14,000 houses have been provided and the current rental stock, following sales, is approximately 7,500 dwellings. As a landlord, the City Council provides a range of housing services including house maintenance, allocations, loans etc. These are in addition to the general services provided by the council e.g. roads, parks, water etc.

How can I contact Cork City Council’s Housing Department? We can be contacted at: The Housing Department Cork City Council, Central Fire Station, Anglesea Street, Cork. Tel: 021-4966222

This Tenant’s Handbook has been produced in order to provide useful information on the housing services available. It is intended also to clarify the roles and responsibilities of both tenant and the City Council, as landlord.

I hope that the handbook will serve as a practical guide and reference.
