Richmondshire District Council

What is a tenancy standard?

The new tenancy standard provides information for maintenance officers and contractors when inspecting an empty property. It makes sure all work that is identified as necessary is detailed in the inspection report.

The identified work will be undertaken in accordance with the council's repair and maintenance priorities - all necessary work taking place prior to the new tenant moving in.

Work to be undertaken following the allocation of the property will be clearly explained to the new tenant with priority times given.
