The financial spend on existing housing stock and asset management is always the biggest line in the business plan. We see lots of clients who have inadequate intelligence on their housing stock in terms of:
- How it meets housing need;
- Energy efficiency.
In our experience social landlords that do not have a joined up, integrated and strategic approach as to how they invest, and do not exercise enough choice in what they invest in, struggle to deliver effective, value for money asset management services. Reviewing your asset management strategy is a good way of ensuring that you are getting maximum value.
