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 14 days and this indicator tracks our average re-let time throughout the year.
Figures from August 2018.
Improved performance from previous month and best of year to date. Performance most affected by lettings of a 2 x bed house in Ullapool (92 days), a 2 x bed flat in Madelvic Square (80 x days) and a 1 x bed flat at Hillbank Place, Dundee (76 x days). The Madelvic Square properties are affected by the requirement for Social Services assessments which often incur delays. Performance excluding the above properties would have been 22.8 days.
