General Waiting List Closed

Posted by chrispanting on October 5, 2018

Due to an increase in demand for our homes and fewer vacant properties becoming available, we have decided to close our General Waiting List until January 2019. In the meantime you can leave your email address on our website and we will contact you when the list is reopened. Applications for our Rent2Buy properties are unaffected – please visit northstaffsrenttobuy.co.uk to apply and view current vacancies.

Office Opening Hours

Posted by GemmaTurton on October 5, 2018

We have decided to close our Reception on Wednesdays, so we can communicate with the increasing number of customers now contacting us via email. You can still contact us by phone on this day (from 9am to 1pm) or anytime via mailbox@epichousing.co.uk or by selecting contact us at the bottom of the page. Our other opening hours are unaffected. For EMERGENCY repairs please call 08006 940434.

Stock Condition Survey

Posted by GemmaTurton on September 4, 2018

From September onwards we will be using a specialist company to check the condition of around a third of our properties. This survey is important as it will help us determine the future investment needs of our housing stock. If chosen, we do need access to your home as this will enable us to keep improving our service. It would also be helpful because, to get accurate results, we require a representative sample of properties. Further and more detailed information will be provided by our contractor in due course.
