what English social landlords need to know
This website advises you what we expect from you and what standards of service you will get from us. It contains all the information that will help you as a resident.
Telling us what you think enables us to make changes to the services you receive, to make them better for you, and more suited to what you need. We know that the only way to find out if we're doing a good job, is to ask you, our customers
As a Customer of Colne you can expect to receive the very highest levels of customer service. This is our commitment to you
All social landlords (councils and housing associations) must use the same method for working out rents. This is called rent restructuring. The aim is that, by 2012, all residents of councils or housing associations should have their rent set in the same way.
This leaflet outlines all the different ways you can pay your rent. We hope by offering these various methods it will allow our residents to choose the method that suits them. Each way of paying is explained in this leaflet.
Does your current property no longer suit your requirements? Are you looking to move to a different area? If the answer is yes, then a mutual exchange with another Colne resident, a different housing association or a council tenant might be the answer you are looking for.
We will maintain your neighbourhood with a consistent approach, providing grounds maintenance, communal area cleaning, refuse collection and planned improvements to our estates.
Colne aims to provide you with excellent customer service at all times, so we need you to tell us if we make a mistake. This leaflet explains how you can make a complaint, and how Colne will treat your complaint to ensure that you are fully satisfied.
This leaflet describes the type of condition you should expect to find your new home in when you move in. Colne will ensure that your property is structurally safe, free from serious disrepair and damp.
