DescriptionAs part of the Scottish Social Housing Charter, social landlords have a commitment to see that “tenants and other customers live in well-maintained neighbourhoods where they feel safe.” So, could you currently say that about all of your neighbourhoods? The area surrounding housing has an immense impact on how people feel about living there. Whether it’s fly tipping, graffiti or overgrown gardens, rundown estates can lead to other problems such as difficult to let properties. This course covers the important issues of estate and neighbourhood management looking at the problems in managing estates and solutions and new methods to try to alleviate these problems.
• Identify different types of estates and the different problems they have
• Explain the regulatory background to estate management
• Give you the skills and knowledge to apply to improve your areas
By the end of this course you will be able to:
• Understand the reasons why areas either improve or decline
• Explain the performance standards for estate management
• Identify key issues that cause deterioration in your estates
• Develop a work plan for inspection and improvement
• Investigate how to use tenant scrutiny to achieve improvement
