We are currently participating in a nationwide study to understand how residents feel about their landlords, and develop a consistent set of questions that will help get to the heart of what matters to residents.

A consistent set of questions will help residents and landlords compare their performance and better understand where they need to improve.

This survey has been organised by HouseMark and we’d be very grateful if you took part.

The survey is split into eight short sections and should take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete. Some of the questions may seem similar and at times you will be asked which question you preferred, or what you were thinking about when you answered the question.

Your feedback will not only be used to develop the new questions going forward but will also be shared anonymously with us to help us improve.

 Would you be interested in Rent To Buy, or know somebody who would be?

We have two 2 bed 57 sq m & 67 sq m flats available at The Old School House, George Place in Plymouth

Brimhay bringing home vital affordable housing


A community benefit society has been given the green light to begin work on redeveloping its land at Brimhay, Dartington, to provide a total of 32 new homes, many of them much-needed social housing for older or vulnerable people.

South Devon Rural Housing Association (SDR) received the final go-ahead from South Hams District Council on 13 November, after discharging conditions attached when the development was approved by planners in October 2017.

 Rent to buy - up to 10% contribution to purchase price (terms apply)
The SHIP Project Plymouth – ready for occupation one flat remains. Contact Elena.

Work will begin shortly on the site in readiness for demolition and construction to begin in the New Year. It’s expected that the first affordable homes should be ready for occupation before the end of 2019.
