Other completed or planned investment includes new bathrooms, lift refurbishments and the cyclical redecoration of the communal areas of blocks of flats. In addition, we ensure that properties are modernised prior to to new tenancies when they are returned to us as and when residents move or are rehoused due to under or over occupying.
We have enlarged our main office space to ensure we are equipped to manage our increased number of properties which has grown by over 20% in the last 18 months. A new satellite office has also been built at our new scheme in Tooting, which with 67 properties, is the largest concentration of New World tenants in one area. Along with these projects, New World will continue to evaluate its stock to ensure that its homes meet the expectations of our residents.
