Tenant inspectors

Tenant inspectors make a real difference to the housing service. If you want to know more about what each department does and become part of a group that can make recommendations to improve the service tenants receive, then this could be the group for you.

Our tenant inspectors can inspect any part of the housing department. The areas they look at are often chosen by tenants at our summer conference. Inspectors look in real detail at their chosen subject by talking to staff, carrying out surveys, attending meetings and complete shadowing exercises as part of their inspections. The inspectors will write a report, make recommendations and report back to the manager of the department.

The inspectors also review their work after a period of time to ensure their recommendations have been put into place.

Recently the inspectors have been looking into the fly tipping on council estates.

You can read the Tenant Inspectors' Fly Tipping in Council Neighbourhoods Report showing the results from their inspection and their list of recommendations on how the issue could be reduced.

Their previous inspection was on the thorny subject of council housing stigma here in Southampton.

You can read the Tenant Inspectors' Council Housing Stigma Report showing what they found out and their list of recommendations on how the council can help better challenge stigma when it happens.
