Tenant Satisfaction Measures

Contents

Why are there new tenant satisfaction measures

In 2020, the government published The charter for social housing residents – social housing white paper,  The charter for social housing residents: social housing white paper – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)   which sets out ways to improve things for people living in social housing.

Some of these are for the Regulator of Social Housing to do, and one of those steps is bringing in a set of tenant satisfaction measures.

The new satisfaction measures will help people;

  • See how well a social housing landlord is doing
  • Check landlords are supplying and maintaining good quality homes
  • Transparency – it will be easier for residents to find out how good a landlord is
  • Comparable – it will be easier to compare landlords
  • See which landlords are better at looking after homes and residents
  • How tenants feel about their landlord

 

What are the Tenant Satisfaction Measures

We will be asking how satisfied or dissatisfied customers are about different things, on the following:

TP01      Overall satisfaction

TP02      Satisfaction with repairs

TP03      Satisfaction with time taken to complete most recent repair

TP04      Satisfaction that the home is well maintained

TP05      Satisfaction that the home is safe

TP06      Satisfaction that the landlord listens to tenant views and acts upon them

TP07      Satisfaction that the landlord keeps tenants informed about things that matter to them

TP08      Agreement that the landlord treats tenants fairly and with respect

TP09      Satisfaction with the landlord’s approach to handling complaints

TP10      Satisfaction that the landlord keeps communal areas clean and well maintained

TP11      Satisfaction that the landlord makes a positive contribution to neighbourhoods

TP12      Satisfaction with the landlord’s approach to handling anti-social behaviour

We will also publish the following management performance measures on our website each year:
 

CH01     Complaints relative to the size of the landlord

CH02     Complaints responded to within Complaint Handling Code timescales

NM01    Anti-social behaviour cases relative to the size of the landlord

RP01      Homes that do not meet the Decent Homes Standard

RP02      Repairs completed within target timescale

BS01      Gas safety checks

BS02      Fire safety checks

BS03      Asbestos safety checks

BS04      Water safety checks

BS05      Lift safety checks

Frequently Asked Questions

Why have I been asked to complete a survey?
  • CCC wants to hear from CBH tenants and leaseholders. They would like to understand how happy its residents are with the services they receive. The survey will ask you to rate certain areas such as repairs and complaints against how satisfied or dissatisfied you have been. For example, you may be satisfied that the outside lights are working, and you now feel safe coming home in the dark.
  • All responses will be used to improve services and help decision making. CCC and CBH will publish the results of the survey so you can see how CBH performs for you.
 
What is the Satisfaction Survey?

The Regulator of Social Housing has created a new system for assessing how well social housing landlords in England (CBH) are performing, and if they are providing good quality homes and services.

There is a set of tenant satisfaction measures that CCC/CBH must consult with tenants on. The results of the survey will let CCC/CBH know how well they are performing against these measures.

The requirement is that each housing provider carries out these surveys every year, so CCC/CBH tenants can have a say and see real improvements in the services they receive every year.

How will I be contacted?
  • We will be working with a company called ARP, which is an independent research agency, on behalf of CCC and CBH.
  • A selection of CBH residents will receive a survey in the post. If you do not receive a postal survey, you can complete one online.

How will I complete the survey?

  • If we don’t see a response to the online invite, you will then be sent a postal survey in a reminder mailing.

  • Any identifying or personal data will not be passed to CCC/CBH unless you give your permission to do so in the survey.

How will the results be used?
