You may already be aware that Erimus Housing is currently undertaking an extensive improvements programme to make sure that all of our homes meet modern day living standards. These works are being carried out to make sure our homes meet the Government's Decent Homes standard.
Not every property will be eligible for all of the works and Erimus Housing will not renew items that were recently installed. One of our surveyors will visit your home and the extent of the works to be done will be discussed with you after the survey has been completed.
The works to be completed by Erimus Housing can include the following:
If you are aware of any health, safety or medical reasons, which could be affected by the works, or any other reason why work needs to be completed earlier or later than planned, please let the contractors representative know as soon as possible. This will enable any necessary arrangements to be made.
You will be fully consulted during the improvement programme; however, the following questions will give you some idea about what to expect during the works.
A. No, we will do the work with as little disruption as possible, although some of the work will be extensive. Some people choose to stay with family or friends at this time. If this is not possible, we can arrange temporary accommodation for those who cannot cope with the work.
A. You will receive a letter well in advance of the planned work and you will then be contacted by the contractor who will be carrying out the programme. The proposed work will be discussed with you and you will be invited to a show home, mobile unit or open day, nearer to the start date to look at the options available.
A. A surveyor working for Erimus Housing or one of our partners. Please be sure that you are satisfied with the identity of each caller before allowing him or her into to your home. All genuine callers will be pleased to show you their identity card, for you to check. If you have any doubts, do not allow them to enter but telephone Erimus Housing on 08000 461 600 or the police on 01642 326326.
A. There are a number of choices available for kitchens, bathroom tiles, flooring, external doors, and fires. In addition, you will be offered the opportunity to choose from a deluxe range of some items available at an additional cost. Click here to view brochures.
A. All of the improvement work is being carried out to improve your living standard. There may be reasons, such as ill health, where work can be carried out at a more convenient time. If you insist that you do not want the work to be carried out an Erimus Housing representative will discuss this with you.
A. No improvement works will be undertaken if you have applied to buy your property. Erimus Housing will of course continue to carry out essential repairs as and when they occur, up until you become the legal owner.
A. When the refurbishment is being done, we will take every precaution to protect your home. However please follow these guidelines.
