How to maintain your home

We publish a booklet on home maintenance which has useful advice on how to look after your home and keep repairs to a minimum.

'Maintaining your home - a householder's guide for Northern Ireland' (PDF 928 kB) can be downloaded below and gives you:

  • details of the┬áproblems that can happen inside and outside your home and how to deal with them
  • a guide to the type of approval you need if you are planning on making improvements to your home
  • information on the types of surveys available and what a building surveyor does

We also provide additional information on winter maintenance.
