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.
Rooftop has a record of when your kitchen, bathroom and boiler were fitted and wrote to all tenants in June 2008 with dates when they are due to be surveyed for renewal. If you have moved into your property since this date, the information will be included in your handover pack.
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.
