Your neighbourhood

We aim to maintain the common areas in your development to keep them safe, clean and tidy.

Estate management

Estate management is a vital part of our housing management and maintenance service.

Our estate management policy ensures the appearance and cleanliness of communal areas in your development are maintained to a high standard.

We regularly inspect common areas with tenants who live in the development.

In doing this, we:

  • Identify and report communal repairs to gardens and common areas
  • Maintain landscaped areas to a high standard
  • Identify areas, which would benefit from improved landscaping and source funding to carry out the improvements
  • Ensure play areas, common paths, fencing and railings are free of any safety hazards
  • Identify and remove graffiti
  • Ensure closes and backcourts are cleaned and maintained to an acceptable standard
  • Identify those who breach tenancy conditions that lead to deterioration of the estate

Landscape maintenance
