Estate management

Estate services, such as cleaning communal areas and communal garden management are paid for by homeowners through their service charges and tenants through their rent.

  • Caretaking and cleaning

    The council provide the caretaking and cleaning services to the blocks and communal outside areas that it owns and manages.

  • Trees and communal gardens

    We employ contractors to look after shared gardens, trees and grassed areas on estates. Estate Services staff at the Area Housing Office will check their work to make sure that it is satisfactory.

  • Estate inspections

    The Estate Services team from your area housing office will inspect each estate thoroughly at least once a month. In between there are regular checks for communal area cleaning and communal repairs. If a problem is identified the team will ensure that the problem is put right.

  • Concierge schemes

    Concierges provide improved security for residents and visitors to the area
