What is HomePlan?
HomePlan® is an annual visit where we have a chat about how things are going with you and your family and look at the condition of your home.
HomePlan® has benefits for both you and Thrive by providing an opportunity to highlight any issues that need to be fixed and to get an up to date record of the property’s condition and any upcoming required works.
What does a HomePlan visit involve?
HomePlan® visits last about an hour and involve a friendly conversation about you and how things are going in your home as well as an inspection of the condition of the property.
Before we attend, we’ll arrange a telephone call so we can check your details are correct and have a chat about anything you might want to discuss during our visit.
When we arrive a member of the team will take a look at the condition of your home. This will involve inspecting the whole property so we can complete an inventory and take photos for our records. Once the visit is complete, we'll share a copy of the inventory with you.
During our visit, we will identify repairs and schedule them too so we can fix them before they become a bigger problem.
Every five years, as part of your Home Plan visit, we aim to carry out a stock condition survey. This is where we take an even deeper look at the condition of your home and plan future works such as kitchen and bathroom upgrades.
We'll also collect meter readings so that we can make sure your home is performing at the energy standard we'd expect. Where this isn't the case, meter readings can help us understand what steps we need to take in order to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
What information do I need to provide during the HomePlan visit?
We will ask you a series of questions about you and the people living in your home. This includes asking for your up to date contact details and a few equality and diversity questions about anyone living in the property. We use this information to ensure fairness across our services.
During the visit we will ask to take a copy of the lead or joint tenant's ID for our records - a valid UK driving licence or passport is generally accepted.
Our team are well equipped with knowledge and advice to provide you with any support you require - so it's always a good idea to have a list of questions ready for our team to assist you.
Why is HomePlan so important?
HomePlan® is our way of making sure your home remains safe and well maintained and that everything is going okay at home for you. By carrying out an annual visit we can identify issues - no matter how big or small - and fix them before they become bigger problems to resolve.
