Get involved with our Tenant Views Club

We know not everyone has lots of spare time, so we’ve grouped the activities together based on how much time they take up.

Activities with one stopwatch One Stopwatch usually take up to an hour every month.

Activities with two Two Stopwatch usually take up to two hours every few months. 

Activities with three Three Stopwatch will need a longer commitment, around two hours once or twice every month.

Inspections can take between two and six months depending on the nature of the service, with regular meetings throughout (tenants only).
