Andy Cope BSc (Hons), MSc, MCIEH, CEnvH, NDip - Housing Standards Consultant

Hi I’m Andy Cope, an independent Housing Standards Consultant based in Derbyshire. The core of my business is helping Landlords, Letting Agents, Local Authorities and Social Housing providers meet necessary health & safety standards for their tenants. Planning Consultants, Architects and Developers also use my services to ensure projects meet legislative requirements. I’m also a key Consultant and Accreditation  Inspector for DASH Services, helping their Landlord members and Semi-Independent Living providers achieve and maintain Accredited status.

If you’re a first-time landlord/developer, let me help you select and develop the right property to achieve health and safety compliance. This can be done via physical inspection or via a ‘WhatsApp’ video call (helpful in these Covid-19 conscious times!).

As a former Senior Local Authority Housing Standards Enforcement Officer at Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham City Council’s, I have over 24 years experience in assessing private residential, student and HMO property. I can conduct a confidential audit of your property portfolio exactly as your local Council would if responding to a complaint, giving you the opportunity to address any potential problems before you face costly enforcement action, civil claims or a damaged reputation.

So if you own, manage or develop private residential letting accommodation in the East Midlands, and need advice or property audits relating to the Housing Health & Safety Rating System, residential Fire Safety (and risk assessments), Houses in Multiple Occupation, HMO Licensing or pending Local Authority enforcement action, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
