Fire risk assessments

We regularly carry out checks and improvements in all of our homes and blocks of flats to ensure they comply with legislation and modern safety standards. We have instructed a third-party contractor, Frankhams, to carry out fire risk assessments up until March 2022. Frankhams will need access to a few homes to carry out a full assessment. They will be contacting customers directly to arrange access, and we would greatly appreciate your cooperation with this.

To find out when they will be carrying out checks in your area please click the button below.
