Estate services

If you’re living in one of our rented homes or your property has any shared areas, one of our partners will regularly visit your neighbourhood to make sure that these are kept in good condition.

We have two main contracts in place – one with Kingdom to clean the internal communal areas of our blocks and one with John O’Connor who look after the grounds.

The costs of these services are covered by the service charges that you pay along with your rent.

Our cleaning partners will clean all shared doors, bin areas and carpets. John O’Connor look after the external areas including grass cutting.

We welcome all your feedback about these services, please let us know your views by visiting the Contact Us page. We’ll make sure that your details are passed on to the relevant people.

Please remember you are still expected to tidy and clean up after yourself if you choose to use any communal areas.
