Estate Inspections

Estate Inspections

Because we want your neighbourhood to be somewhere you are proud and happy to live, we carry out regular estate inspections at our housing schemes, often in partnership with residents.

Estate Responsibilities – Ours and Yours


We employ grounds maintenance contractors to carry out gardening work such as:

Tree surgery

Every year we carry out a safety survey of trees in communal areas. We then produce a schedule of tree surgery giving priority to urgent work. We always check for Tree Preservation Orders and never remove trees unless we have to.

Cleaning and tidiness

We employ cleaners to do basic cleaning inside and outside our housing schemes. Their work includes:

What we expect you to do

We expect you:

We will remove pests, such as ants, bees, wasps and mice, from communal areas, but you are responsible for removing pests from your home and garden. Contact the environmental health department of your council for more information.

Please refer to your tenancy agreement for a full list of your responsibilities.
