What to Expect

Please take the time to read through your Tenancy Agreement and Tenant Information Pack and keep these important documents to hand for easy reference.
Here you will find information about your responsibilities in terms of the general maintenance of the property. We want you to be safe and comfortable in your home, so we need you to report any issues that arise so that we can deal with them quickly and effectively.

In addition, we will contact you at the appropriate time to arrange access for required safety inspections to be carried out (e.g. Gas, Electrical, Water System – Legionella Risk Assessment as appropriate to your property) – we appreciate your cooperation with these important safety processes.

In the documentation we have provided you will find important information regarding the regular maintenance of your water supply, shower heads etc. We ask you to pay particular attention to this, particularly if there are any “vulnerable” persons (as defined under the Legionella Risk Assessment information provided) present at the property.
You will also find details about what you need to do if you decide you want to leave your property.

We have a commitment to resolve issues quickly and reliably.
