Decent homes standard
We can help
Our Reinvestment Team is responsible for carrying out improvement works to your home.
Annually, Rooftop spends in the region of £4 million to ensure your home meets the Decent Homes standard. The government has stipulated that all social housing must meet the Decent Homes Standard, which was set out to ensure that all social housing homes:
- meet the current legal minimum standard for housing;
- be in a reasonable state of repair;
- have reasonably modern facilities and services; and
- provide a reasonable degree of thermal comfort.
If Rooftop proposes to update your home by replacing your kitchen or installing a new central heating system or bathroom you will be contacted in the first instance by a letter from our Reinvestment Team.
