Following the Regulators engagement, BeST has taken steps to improve its statutory compliance position and has commissioned a number of statutory checks, as well as demonstrating an improved understanding of our responsibilities in relation to leased stock. We have appointed an external contractor to undertake the outstanding checks and have developed a plan to set out how this will be delivered. We will continue to work closely with the Regulator to achieve full compliance with the Regulatory Standards.

We are now only carrying out emergency repairs and essential services.
The health and safety of our tenants, staff and partners is our number one priority. Having acted in accordance with government advice, we have decided to postpone all non-essential services until further notice. Only Emergency Repairs will be honoured at this time. Housing Officers will maintain contact by phone and/ or email until such time that the risks can be minimised.
Please be assured that we have a business continuity plan in place to ensure that our obligations as a landlord can be met and we can deal with the potential challenges ahead.
BeST are taking measures to minimise the disruption of our services and the potential spread of the virus to our tenants, staff and partners. We are constantly monitoring this ever-changing situation and will continue to follow the latest advice and guidance as provided by the Government.
