Refurbishment Process


Since we set up the business 5 years ago, we have been buying properties in County Durham which have been left to get run down and are in a poor condition and refurbishing the properties them to the minimum of the Durham Decent Home Standard, improving the desirability of the properties and the neighbourhoods and homing approximately 10 families in better homes every month.


The amount of work will vary depending on the original state of the property but normally include the following;

  • New Boiler
  • Double Glazing
  • Electrical upgrade and Report
  • Damp proof course
  • Hard Wired Smoke Alarm
  • External Extraction in Bathroom
  • Plastic Cladding in bathrooms / toilets
  • Carpet, Lino, underlay
  • Kitchen / bathroom
  • General decorating
  • Overhaul of the roof, guttering and fascias
  • Painiting of external headers and sills
  • Tidying of external yard / garden space

Any snagging issues following our refurbishment are resolved free of charge in the first 6 months following your purchase.

In line with our principles, Durham County Council have recently bought in a Selective Licensing scheme for many of the properties in the County Durham area.  This come in on 1st April 2022.  So we will also provide you all the documents and information that you will need to apply for the selective licence included with your property purchase.
