According to the National Center for Healthy Housing, a healthy home is housing that is designed, constructed and maintained, in a manner that is conducive to good occupant health.
Improving the condition of private sector housing will not only benefit the housing stock but provide significant improvements in independence, health and wellbeing that people experience when they live in a home designed to meet their needs.
The cost of making these critical works can be challenging as many of us don’t have the ready finance, which can often be costly and unexpected.
For homeowners looking to fund these home improvements, we may be able to help. We’ve been working in partnership with councils across the South West since 2005 to provide affordable loans to homeowners across the district.
From replacement heating to whole new roofs, to damp remedy and structural repairs, through to updating kitchens and bathrooms or outdated electrical wiring or plumbing, the eligible works are varied.
Our homes can influence many different aspects of our lives, including our health and wellbeing. By encouraging home improvements, repairs and adaptations, we can ensure that everyone has access to a safe, warm and dry home.
A client who recently benefited from the home improvement loan scheme said “Lendology made the cost of replacing my boiler affordable. Without them, I would be stuck in winter without any heating or hot water. Andy made the whole process so easy and he is such a customer friendly person.”
