Reducing repair bills through employment

Posted on 02 December 2016

We have contributed to new research from the Housing Association Charity Trust (HACT) which reveals that repair bills can be significantly reduced if tenants are supported into work.

Routine maintenance costs the social housing sector in England in excess of £1.8 billion per year, and the research found that moving people back into work can help reduce this bill by approximately £130m. Statistics reveal that tenants in full-time employment are more likely to have between 16-34% lower responsive repairs costs compared to those claiming full housing benefit.
