Annual Home Visits

Belle Isle TMO are required to carry out tenancy verification audits of all properties managed by us, at least once every year. We are checking to ensure that the legal tenant is still living in the property and that sub-letting or any other activity that contravenes the Tenancy Agreement is not taking place.

When we visit you can raise any concerns with  us,  request information about the services we provide or report a repair. You may wish to become involved with a local Tenants and Resident Group or take part in other activities arranged by the council to improve your neighbourhood.
