Looking after your home
We work with specialist consultants to make sure your home is safe at all times and maintain thorough records of safety certification and checks. We invest every year into maintaining our properties – and your home - to the highest safety standard. We’re absolutely committed to making sure that your home is safe.
When you become a C&C resident, there are a number of things that you should do to help keep your home or scheme safe.
It is important that escape routes are clear at all times, this includes not placing items in communal hallways as they might cause obstruction. The evacuation procedures differ between the range of properties that we manage, so residents must familiarise themselves with the evacuation procedure for their building.
Fire maintenance information will be available via scheme staff and the C&C Service Hub.
