We’re proud to announce the extension of our English Housing Survey (EHS) contract for another 2 years.
The survey is an official government study commissioned by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and records information about the population’s housing circumstances and the condition of the housing stock in England. First undertaken in 1967, the information is used for monitoring and developing government housing and energy related policies.
Since 2012, CADS Housing Survey team has played a key role in fulfilling the EHS survey. Four regional managers, supported by a Helpline team based in Edinburgh coordinate the annual physical inspection of over 6000 homes by a team of 150 contracted specialist housing surveyors who record the property’s construction type, details of insulation, heating and general condition and many other categories.
All the information is then analysed by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) working with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
More information about the survey is available from the MHCLG website.
