Your home when you move in

Your home when you move in:

Our Moving In Standards are 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 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
