Despite the pandemic having a large impact, we have continue to progress with critical services and make significant improvements throughout.

Performance is measured in two key ways:

  • How Bield compare to the Scottish average.
  • How Bield compare to similar landlords such as – Hanover (Scotland), Trust, Viewpoint and Blackwood Homes and Care.

Bield’s Profile…

83.62% of people felt their tenant was good at keeping them informed about services and decisions, this was once again higher than when compared to similar landlords.

Quality & Maintenance…

This is considerably higher than the Scottish average as well as when compared to similar landlords.

Despite all the Covid disruptions in the past year, 19 shower rooms and 31 kitchens were installed into flats, to name a small amount of the maintenance work carried out.

The average lenght of time to complete non-emergency repairs was down this year compared to last, but it was still nearly a day quicker than the Scottish average.

Neighbourhood & Community…

Getting good value from rents and service charge…

At the beginning of the first national lockdown, Bield suspended the letting of homes, other than for people experiencing homelessness this meant the % of rent lost through properties being empty in the last year was 5.90%.

Money Matters…

  • Turnover for the year was £41.3m.
  • Operating costs amounted to £37.31m.

It seems a great deal of money, but did you know?

  • Staff costs for the year amounted to just over £14.4m
  • We spent £4m on day-to-day repairs to properties
  • We spent £2.5m on planned maintenance, including major repairs.
