It is that time of year again – with winter approaching and the temperature dropping, we are commencing this year’s winter checks programme. This year, we will be carrying out these checks in all households where the tenant(s) are aged 70 years or over.
These checks include the following:
- Stop cock identification
- Checking your property is secure
- Any outstanding repairs
- Any tripping hazards on access paths
- Cleaning any bathroom or kitchen extractor fans
The check are undertaken by Almond Enterprises and they will be in touch with all qualifying tenants between now and Christmas to arrange a suitable time.
Even if you do not qualify for a winter check we would urge you to get your house winter ready by conducting the same checks yourself and advising us of any concerns you might have.
