What do I have to pay for?

Ready4Home’s residents are obliged to use the property in a resident-like manner and not cause damage. Ready4Home may issue a recharge invoice for the following:

Clearing a blockage if it has been caused by the residents.
Repairing damage (i.e. broken windows)
Key/lock replacements
Misuse of the emergency repair service. This is because emergency call-outs can be expensive and should only be used for genuine emergencies.
Abortive visits – asking for an engineer to attend and then refusing them entry, or going out at the time of an agreed appointment.
Cleaning, if you vacate and leave the property in an unsuitable condition.
Removing large items left by residents
Any work you ask Ready4Home to do which is your responsibility.
Other incidences akin to the above.
You are responsible for paying your rent and service charges to Ready 4 Home Housing Support CIC, whether this is via Housing Benefit or from other funds. Non-payment of rent is a breach of Licence and if not resolved can result in the loss of your home. A reference should be given for any payments into Ready4Home’s bank account, so we can quickly allocate the payment to you.
