New survey of NIHE properties commences
Published: Fri, 15 Aug 2014
The Housing Executive, jointly with the Department for Social Development (DSD), is carrying out a survey of its properties across Northern Ireland.
Information from the survey will be used by the Housing Executive to inform what needs to be done to maintain its properties in the future. DSD will also use the information to forecast the future investment requirements.
The survey will be carried out by Savills, a firm of Chartered Surveyors which provides property survey services in the social housing sector. The survey work will commence towards the end of August and is expected to complete at the end of the year or early in the new year. It will involve around 20,000 homes of all types across the province, garages, and commercial properties. We will be writing to all our tenants over the coming weeks to let them know about the survey.
We would greatly appreciate the help of residents with the survey and we would assure them that the surveyors will not interfere with their property and inconvenience will be minimal.
The first surveys will be carried out on our multi storey blocks of flats.
