Moving into your council property

Our Moving In Standard document contains details on the standard to which all council homes are required to meet prior to them being let.  At the viewing, your Neighbourhood Management Officer will go through this standard with you and use a checklist to make sure it has been met.  To minimise any delays in the property becoming available for you, some repairs may be completed after you move in.  We will, however, ensure that the property:

  • is safe to move in to
  • is secure and water tight
  • has received a gas safety check (where appropriate)
  • has received an electrical safety check

A copy of our Moving In Standard can be found in our ‘How to guides, videos and useful downloads’ section.
