Being a BITMO Tenant

You are a Leeds City Council tenant, with all the advantages that brings. Housing Leeds is a large organisation with a lot of resources. You have rights, like the Right to Buy and a secure tenancy (new tenants have an intital period as Introductory Tenants).

You also the advantages brought to you because your area is run by a tenant management organisation.

Among the benefits that BITMO provides are:

  • Having a housing reception where you can go in and speak to housing staff directly
  • A caretaking service
  • The BITMOs GATE community resource centre, where you can get help finding a new job, training or college course, support to use computers, sessions to help with weight management or stop smoking and advice on benefits and debt – as well as many classes and groups from guitar to arts and crafts to a community café.
  • Major decisions being taken by a Board, with a majority of elected tenants, that focusses on Building a Better Future for Belle Isle.

Every five years BITMO tenants and leaseholders have a vote to decide if BITMO should continue to manage the estate. The most recent ballot was in September 2019. 1093 people voted, with 96% voting for BITMO to continue. The next ballot will be held in September 2024.
