Decent Home standard
The Decent Homes Standard is a technical standard for Housing Associations. It is important that the Decent Home Standard is achieved and property inspections including stock condition surveys are used to check compliance with the standard.
Westfield Housing Association plans its maintenance and repairs activities to ensure the standard is met or exceeded for all of it properties. The standard is however, a minimum standard and has distinct limitations, for example in relation to environmental works and energy efficiency. We aim to exceed this standard with a strong emphasis on environmental sustainability and warmer homes.
If you have an issue with your property which you feel prevents it from meeting the Decent Homes standard, please contact the Property Services Officer on 07713333441.
