My community

Loving where you live

Whether you're walking your dogs in the morning, taking your children to the playground or coming home after work, we want to ensure you feel comfortable in your community. We have a whole team of people who feel this way, and whose job it is to keep your community safe. This includes the Housing team and the Neighbourhood team, who will be happy to chat with you if you see them out and about.

Anti-social behaviour (ASB)

We want our tenants to be able to enjoy their lives and communities without being anxious about crime or disorder. We aim to provide and uphold secure and safe communities that people want to be a part of. However, from time to time the actions of others can have a negative impact on us and can start to affect our day to day lives.

Keeping communal areas safe

When we talk about communal areas, this includes interior spaces like hallways, landings and laundry rooms. It's important we follow one important rule in these spaces, and that's to make sure we don't leave any personal belongings laying around. We enforce this rule strictly, because it's for the health & safety of all tenants using the space. 

Reporting fraud

If someone rents their home without permission, leaves their home without letting us know or has given false information to access a home, then this would be classed as ‘tenancy fraud’. Tenancy fraud is a serious crime and we do not tolerate it, so if you know someone who is acting fraudulently, please let us know as soon as possible. And don't worry, we won't give out your details. To find out more about fraud and how to report it, then visit our ‘Your Tenancy’ page. See it, report it, stop it
