Property Checklist

Recent events regarding fire safety have demonstrated the need for a high level of health and safety standards.  We pride ourselves on working with owners to achieve a minimum property standard of specification for each home that we manage or lease.  All our operatives are Healthy Home Rating System (HHRS) trained meaning they adopt a qualitative approach to identifying health and safety hazards in the home, enabling these risks to be removed or minimised.

It is important that you read this checklist to ensure your property is suitable for our services. If you are not sure that your property meets the criteria, then please contact a member of the Salix Living team who will be happy to provide advice and assistance on what you need to do.
