Estate management


   

Description

As 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.
