CODE 1    Occupied

A household has a formal tenancy agreement for a particular dwelling. Occupied dwellings include any structures that people actually live in regardless of its intended purpose. The structure may or may not be tenantable.

CODE 2    Unoccupied, tenantable

No formal tenancy agreement exists between a household and a housing provider for a particular dwelling. A not occupied structure is only a dwelling if it is intended for human residence. The structure is tenantable, thus provides a certain level of basic amenity and maintenance is completed to the required minimum level.

CODE 3   Unoccupied, untenantable

No formal tenancy agreement exists between a household and a housing provider for a particular dwelling. A not occupied structure is only a dwelling if it is intended for human residence. The structure is not tenantable, thus the dwelling does not provide a certain level of basic amenity and maintenance is completed to the required minimum level.

Collection methods:Help on this term
