Living in our homes
Living in one of our homes is more than just renting a property. You are part of a wider community in our amazing city.
There's lots of ways we can work together to make sure everyone enjoys their home and neighbourhoods, keep safe and get on with our every day lives.
However, we appreciate it's not always plain sailing, so we also have lots of ways you can let us know when something isn't quite right.
Looking after our estates
We are committed to working with you and our partners to build confident communities.
Looking after our estates is crucial to looking after your home and local community.
We aim to implement and maintain the high standards that all our customers have a right to expect.
Looking after your estate is overseen by our Estates Management teams, who look after everything from the maintenance of the estate and the local environment to problems of antisocial behaviour and nuisance.

Paying your rent
Your rent pays for your home and the services we provide for you. We know everyone is different, so we offer a range of flexible payment options for you to pay your rent in a way that suits you and your circumstances.
Repairs and Maintenance
Keeping your home in a good state of repair is one of our most important services. Nearly all of the work we do is completed by our in-house team of operatives who provide a round the clock service to make sure that from you picking up the phone, to one of our operatives knocking on your door, we provide a professional and quick service.
Estate inspections, commonly known as estate walks, take place on a regular basis.
These walks are carried out to highlight areas of concern and to make sure that the general appearance of your estate is satisfactory.
