Block inspections

As part of our efforts to keep you safe in your home and to comply with Fire Safety regulations, we visit every 4 weeks to inspect the internal and external communal areas.

Here are some examples of what we will looking at:

  • Assessing the building for any routine repairs
  • Checking internal walkways, stairwells and cupboards
  • External grounds including tress, hedges and shrub beds
  • Fly-tipping

We have a zero-tolerance policy towards any items being stored in communal areas. Here are some examples of items that we will be asking residents to remove during our visit.

  • Doormats, carpet and other flooring
  • Plant pots
  • Décor items and lighting
  • Doorstops
  • Chairs
  • Gardening tools and equipment
  • Shoe racks and Footwear
  • Ashtrays 
  • Self-built structures and Cupboards/Shelves
  • Mobility Scooters

We understand this advice may be new to residents, but we ask for your understanding and cooperation.

Please do not hesitate to speak to the Neighbourhood Officer when they are on site if you have any questions.
