Housing Management

HOUSING MANAGEMENT

Tuath Housing Association work in partnership with all Local Authorities with an aim to create socially responsible and sustainable communities where people want to live.

By liaising with the housing allocations sections of the relevant local authority, we ensure that all applicants are interviewed, and a Garda vetted before moving into our homes.   Keeping in mind our desire for a balanced age and working profile, we aim to have a good age range of tenants, both adults and children, working and non-working, different cultures etc.

All tenants are required to participate in a tenant Induction process in advance of moving into their new homes. Once tenants have moved into their homes we work closely with the local statutory and community-based agencies to ensure that tenants are provided with services where this is needed.

A pro-active housing management program promotes a sustainable community this includes but is not limited to:

  • Working with in the Residential Tenancies Part 4 Legislation
  • Caretaking initiatives
  • Cash reserves for long term maintenance planning
  • Comprehensive annual scheme and unit’s inspection program
  • Quality repairs service, 24/7/365 response
  • True Affordability based on the differential rent scheme
  • Sustainable allocations and lettings planning
  • Tenant participation/community cohesion initiatives
