Finding a home

Letting standards

Before you move into your new home we will make sure your property is safe, clean and in a reasonable state of repair.

We call this the lettable standard and it sets out the standard that ISHA properties will meet when they are let to new tenants.

We will try to complete all works before you move into the property, but, where works are not urgent, we may have to carry them out after you have moved in. In those cases, we will give you a target time for completion of the works.

For more information, download our lettable standard (pdf, 204kb)

Before you move in we will inspect:

  • roofs (where pratical)
  • external walls (where practical)
  • windows and external joinery
  • doors
  • floors
  • internal joinery
  • internal walls and ceilings
  • kitchens
  • bathrooms
  • plumbing
  • heating systems /gas appliances
  • electrical installation
  • fire alarms
  • decorations
  • cleanliness
  • gardens and boundaries (where applicable)
  • energy conservation (where appropriate).
