Six Town Housing (STH) is an Arm’s length management organisation (ALMO) with over 8 000 customers. It manages housing on behalf of Bury Council and owns properties as a result of empty homes and mortgage rescue activity. It also manages other properties on behalf of other landlords. Its role includes delivering a range of services, often in partnership. These help manage and improve neighbourhoods, support vulnerable people at all stages of their lives and assist Bury Council to discharge its legal obligations to those who need housing.

The overall aim is providing high-quality homes and sustainable neighbourhoods. Ad-hoc cleaning at tenanted properties will also be required as part of this specification.

The voids repair team sit within the repairs and maintenance section and also work with in house colleagues to deliver internal upgrades such as kitchens and bathrooms. Properties are prepared for incoming customers to a published standard and made available at the earliest opportunity to ensure properties are signed up quickly and rent loss kept to a minimum.

The services include but are not limited to:

(a) clean and wipe to specified details issued by the Authorising Officer;

(b) pre-cleaning properties prior to STH undertaking work;

(c) carpet cleans – vacuuming only.
