East Devon Homes was established as a business unit of East Devon District Council as a response to the reform of council housing finance and in preparation for a new era of freedom from central control over council housing finance.

The purpose of East Devon Homes is to provide landlord services to tenants of East Devon District Council.  It has been set up to manage, maintain and expand our social housing portfolio and associated assets including community centres, garages, play areas, communal areas, land and grounds. 

It is not a stock transfer or arms length management arrangement.  The council remain ultimately responsible legally and financially for housing.
