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.
As a former Senior Local Authority Housing Standards Enforcement Officer at Derby, Nottingham and Birmingham City Council’s, I have over 22 years experience in assessing private residential 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 reputational damage.
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, Houses in Multiple Occupation, HMO Licensing or pending Local Authority enforcement action, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
