    25 March update

    Service Charges – LHP provide a number of services to our customers such as ground maintenance, communal cleaning, window cleaning for which customers receive a charge for payable through either a fixed or variable service charge.

    We are continuing to work with all our contractors who provide these services to ensure that they are able to continue to provide these service as usual  where it is safe to do so in line with the governments COVID-19 advice.

    24 March update

    • In line with government guidance on the Coronavirus outbreak and for the safety of our customers, we have decided to close all communal areas in our sheltered schemes for the time being. Please rest assured that these areas are still being extensively cleaned and will reopen to residents once safe to do so.
    • You may have noticed that recently we have not advertised any properties for sales or lettings. This is due to our lettings process being on standby due to coronavirus. The service will resume as normal once it is safe to meet with those of you who may be interested in viewing one of properties.

    23 March update

    As you will have seen from our previous correspondence, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership’s main priority as part of the Coronavirus outbreak is to ensure the safety of our staff and customers.

    It is with that in mind, and the government guidance on social distancing, that we have made the decision to move to an Emergency Plus Repairs service only from 5pm on Monday 23 March.

    We will continue to provide the following repairs services to all customers:

    • Heating and hot water
    • Sanitation, including running water
    • Power
    • That properties are secure: doors and windows
    • Fix anything which is causing significant damage to the property

    As we are unable to predict how long we will be delivering this limited service for, we are committing to ensure that all key services are returned to an operational state by the end of the repair.

    If you have a current appointment scheduled with us, one of our Planning Team will be in touch to postpone your appointment and we will reschedule these once our normal repairs service resumes.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you, but we are sure you will recognise that, with the Coronavirus outbreak, this is the safest course of action for both staff and customers. We would like to thank you for your cooperation and if you have any queries, please call us on 0345 604 1472, email info@lincolnshirehp.com or direct message us through social media.

    Please contact us on 0345 604 1472 or use the Contact Us form on our website.

    What we are doing

    We want to reassure you about the steps we are taking at LHP to reduce the risk of this virus taking hold. We are ensuring staff have appropriate protective equipment and are self-isolating if they display any symptoms. We can let you know that we currently have no staff members confirmed with the virus.

    Although we will make every effort to continue to deliver all of our services as usual, if the  outbreak escalates in the UK, we will need to put some measures in place to help minimise the risk of further spread and keep our staff and customers safe.

    We know that these measures will cause a disruption to our normal service, including delayed routine repairs and longer wait times for calls. Your understanding and co-operation at this time is greatly appreciated.

    If you are self-isolating, we will continue to provide the following emergency repairs
