Standards in your new home

We have set standards to ensure new homes are:

Welcoming

· The garden is tidy with any grass cut

· The property is clear, clean and waterproof

· There are no visible leaks

· Doors and windows are watertight

Safe

· Gas and/or electric supplies are tested as safe

· Property alterations have been inspected and approved

· There is no visible mould or damp

Practical

· The kitchen has space for essential appliances such as the cooker and fridge

· The number of kitchen units is suitable for the size of the property

· There is an electricity and where possible a gas supply for the cooker

If you have a gas cooker, you will need to have it installed by a qualified gas engineer. You will need to arrange to have your own washing machine plumbed in and will need to buy and fit your own floor covering. You should arrange your own contents insurance (please ask us about this as we have information on how you can do this).
