3. Bathroom standard

We will:

  • Check pipework and taps are free from leaks and waste pipes are not blocked. If necessary, we'll replace the plug and chain to the bath and basin. 
  • Make sure the bath, WC and basin are sound, clean and functional.
  • Replace the toilet seat and make sure that the toilet cistern is flushing properly.
  • Clean and overhaul any ventilation systems fitted by East Devon Homes.
  • Overhaul the electric shower. If this wasn't fitted by East Devon Homes the only work we do is to check that the shower works and is electrically compliant.
  • Make sure floor coverings are sound, clean and moisture resistant.
