What is the "decent homes" standard?

The Government believes everyone should have the opportunity to have a decent home. This means it should be warm and weatherproof with reasonably modern facilities and that each are a key element of any thriving, sustainable community. To help achieve this it, it introduced the "decent homes" standard to help social housing providers improve the conditions of their homes. For a property to be labelled a decent home it must meet certain criteria. It has nothing to do with location, floor level or size. Instead, it focuses on the health and wellbeing of the people who live in them. If you feel that your property does not meet this standard, you must discuss it with your landlord.
