Response 

1. The Council inspects all residential accommodation when it becomes void.  The Council’s Letting Standard is followed and properties would not normally be re-let unless they met this standard.  This particular FOI relates to an individual property at 145 Milton Drive, Buckie.  Our records show that the tenancy at this address changed following a mutual exchange.

A mutual exchange inspection was carried out on 15 November 2011 prior to the mutual exchange happening.  No issues were identified.

As part of the conditions for a mutual exchange, tenants must satisfy themselves that they are happy with the condition of the property as seen and they also accept full liability in terms of the condition of the property once they sign their new tenancy agreement.  Our current policy states that no major works will be carried out to a mutual exchange property for a period of 6 months from the date of exchange but normal repairs and maintenance would continue to be done.  Mutual exchange properties do receive a gas safety check but in this case there was no gas supply however,  our standard electrical installation check was carried out on 6 December 2012.
