It is your obligation under the terms of the plan to ensure your property has the appropriate buildings insurance cover in place. We write to you each year requesting a copy for our records.
Under the terms of the plan you must allow us access to your property to carry out an inspection.
We will write to you periodically when an inspection is due on the property. A representative acting on behalf of Retirement Bridge Management will contact you to arrange a convenient time to visit you at the property.
The surveyor will walk around the house (internal and external) viewing its condition. They will make notes during the visit, take photograghs and produce a report after the visit. If you’d like to see the report we will send you a copy.
If the report identifies that your property requires essential work, we will write to you detailing the works required and ask that this work is carried out within three months from the date of the report. If you think it will take longer please contact us to discuss.
Additionally, we may from time to time carry out a sample review of all the properties we have a financial interest in. Your property may be selected in this sample. If so this involves an external only viewing of your property by our nominated representative who may need to take photographs. If so they should act responsibly so that your privacy and enjoyment of the property is not affected.
Your terms and conditions state you must notify us if anyone who is not part of the plan is living at the property.
We will write to you each year requesting you complete a declaration of occupancy form.
We need you to confirm that you are still living at the property, should anyone be living with you at the property you should provide their details on the form.
They will be required to sign an Occupants Deed, which we will forward to you on receipt of the notification.
