Matt’s main responsibilities lie with carrying out stock condition surveys to maintain our SLH home standards, as well as these surveys he will be carrying out surveys to our infrastructure, garages, new build properties and our commercial assets to maintain our set standards.
As part of a Stock Condition survey, Matt will go out to our tenant’s homes every seven years to assess the age and condition of the major elements of your home (such as kitchens and bathrooms), allowing us to estimate the renewal year for each item. He will also assess the general condition of each property to ensure they are to the correct standards throughout our stock.
