TFEC are delighted to see the release of the White Paper that aims to empower the tenant voice, reinforce the regulator's remit and strengthen consumer regulation.

TFEC place tenant and leaseholder engagement at the very center of getting stuff right. So it’s pleasing to see culture featuring so strongly in this new paper. We’re looking forward to working with Melton Borough Council’s housing service to unlock the powers set out in the White Paper.

It is recognised as part of paper the landlords responsibilities and duties giving consideration to:

  • Being safe I your home
  • Performance around landlord measures
  • Complaint management
  • Respect – removing stigma that was once associated with being a council tenant for example
  • Voice heard by your Landlord – this will only develop and strengthen the TFEC voice
  • A good quality home and neighborhood – I will be working very closely with Jodie and Julie to monitor this item to scrutinise delivery of what tenants should receive
  • Ownership – setting foundations for secure tenants to be given the opportunity to purchase their own home  - importantly then allowing MBC to acquire properties accordingly

TFEC is excited to work with MBC and raise the standards of social housing to meet the targets set out. We are a committed group to our tenants and leaseholders to ensure that this is delivered.

The Tenants Forum Executive Committee (TFEC) meet on a regular basis to discuss all housing issues that affect tenants and discuss how to make suggestions on how we can improve our services. The forum is made up of tenants from across Melton Borough.
