Covid-19 Notice

Reassurance to tenants of the Jersey Homes Trust.

COVID-19 Crisis;
26 March 2020.

The Jersey Homes Trust is a responsible and compassionate housing provider. We are used to working with those of our tenants who may have financial difficulties from time to time.

During the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis we recognise that some tenants will experience delays or interruptions in their income and prompt payment of rental may be affected. In such cases it is important to contact our Managers and to explain the problem. You will find us helpful and understanding.

In all normal circumstances we expect you to continue to pay your rent when it is due.

If you are laid off from work you should contact Customer & Local Services to make a claim for Income Support, which will assist you to pay your rent. Existing Income support claimants should contact Income Support by email Income.support@gov.je with details of any change in circumstances.

The Jersey Homes Trust does not intend to evict tenants who go into rent arrears because of Covid-19.

Finally, we are happy to announce that Trustees have decided;

until further notice, the Trust will not implement rental increases that fall due.

Chairman

Parking

Parking

The primary aim of the Jersey Homes Trust is to provide living accommodation, but car parking spaces will be offered where these are available. Please park only in designated areas and do not obstruct footpaths, grass areas or emergency exits. Access roads must be kept clear at all times so that emergency services can reach all premises. Tenants must not park in visitor spaces. 

If your property includes a garage you must use it for parking rather than parking on the roads in your estate.

Our Managers may, from time to time, issue regulations and/or permits relating to parking on Jersey Homes Trust property. This is for the benefit of our residents as it helps to ensure that every tenant entitled to a parking space has one.

Any tenant found to be abusing car parking arrangements will be regarded as being in breach of their Tenancy Agreement.
