Our chief concern is the health and safety of our residents, and of our staff. We are doing everything we can to minimise the impact on the services you receive from us.
To keep everyone safer, we are limiting face to face meetings with residents.
This information relates to applications to purchase your home under the Right to Buy Scheme.
As you can appreciate, the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) will affect how we inspect and value your property.
We remain committed in providing a service to you so that you can continue to go ahead with your Right to Buy application.
Due to the current situation we will stop physical inspections and will be carrying out desktop valuations until further notice.
To help us carry out our desktop valuation we may ask you to provide some information during the process, this could include:
- A photograph of the outside of your property both front and back if you live in a house
- A photograph of the outside of the block if you live in a flat or maisonette
- A photograph of the bathroom and kitchen
- An Improvements form detailing any improvements you have made to the property.
Regarding the valuation, we cannot advise on this as the valuation is carried out by our Property Services team following successfully being accepted for the right to buy.
