The allocations policy has the following objectives: · to enable the co-op to offer low cost housing to those who cannot meet their housing needs elsewhere · to allocate properties by balancing housing need with “co-operability” · to ensure that the co-op’s Equal Opportunities Policy is implemented in allocations, transfers and exchanges
The Co-op is fully mutual and because all members are part of the governing body then all members come fall under the requirements of Schedule One. As a result no member or their relatives, friends or associates can benefit financially from the Co-op. Conflicts of interest must be raised during co-op meetings and decision making processes, and these must take the form of minutes declarations of interest (see Standing Orders for the General Meeting).

rent arrears policy
Rent arrears have many adverse affects on the Cooperative, as rent is the main source of income. High rent arrears can result in services such as repairs being affected, thus endangering the provision of safe and comfortable housing. As a responsible Landlord The co-op will aim to maximise the rental income of the Co-op and provide an efficient housing management service to tenants. To achieve this tenants will be contacted at the earliest possible stage about rent arrears; not only by writing letters, but also carrying out visits to tenants homes.
rent arrears policy objective
Housing Co-ops depend on the rent collected from their tenants for their main source of income. It is therefore the policy of the Co-operative to keep the level of arrears to an absolute minimum in order to maximize income in the interests of the co-op and its members
repairs + maintenance policy
This policy governs the manner in which repairs and maintenance of the Co-op’s property is carried out, and covers the co-op’s residential property, defined as boundaries of the co-op under the terms of the mutual occupation agreement. The repairs procedure will be coordinated by the Repairs Officers with the assistance of co-op members and tenants. Tenants as members of the co-op are expected to take a proactive role in implementing the repairs and maintenance procedure. They should familiarize themselves with the repairs process, emergency procedures and contact numbers and seek training where needed.
Suggestions for building a Rent Collection Policy.
Before a building begins to collect rent, the association should write and approve a rent policy. This will clarify what the rules and procedures for rent collection will be, preventing future conflicts and confusion.
Few people join the co-op with the knowledge, skills, and experience they need to make a full contribution to the life of the co-op. Also, because the circumstances of the co-op are constantly evolving and changing, members need new skills and information. The co-op aims to identify and assess training needs of members in relation to their rights and responsibilities as members of the coop, and to develop strategic and operational procedures to meet these needs.
