Average number of days to re-let properties
When a property is empty (void) we are unable to receive income for that property through rent and service charges. This means we have less money to spend on improving services and people’s homes. This is why it is important for us to re-let properties in the shortest time possible. Our aim is to re-let all properties within 28 days and this indicator tracks our average re-let time throughout the year.
Figures from June 2018.
17 voids let during the month with a total of 545 void days. Performance impacted most by the letting of 3 properties above 80 days with an overall average of 97 days. Two of the properties were in the North and subject to delays due to the lack of contractor availability (in advance of the void squad being in place). The third property was a studio flat at Glentanar Court in Paisley which had no demand but was let after 95 days.
