Home Decoration Scheme

Derby Homes offers a Home Decoration Scheme to tenants who live in flats or bungalows that are, or would have been, included for a warden visit (either resident or mobile).

Tenants join the scheme and pay a weekly charge, We will decorate one room each year. 

How much does it cost?

The cost for this scheme is £5.43 per week which is added on to your rent. If you are in receipt of Housing Benefit it will be covered by that. 

Can I choose the colours?

Yes - you will be offered a choice of wallpaper patterns and paint colours from a range supplied by the decorators.

Once I have joined the scheme can I change my mind?

If you choose to go onto the scheme your tenancy conditions are changed. There is no option for your property to be removed from this scheme in the future. You can choose not to have any decorating done but you will still have to pay the weekly charge.
