The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 has been designed to ensure that all rented accommodation is fit for human habitation and to strengthen tenants means of redress. The legislation requires social housing landlords to ensure that they are meeting their existing responsibilities with regards to property standards and safety.

goldeni’s suite of IoT solutions can assist social housing associations meet this legislation by providing insights into the internal environment within the property and also how tenants affect the internal environment. 

Crucially providing an understanding on where issues lie and providing an audit trail on identification to fix and ensure properties remain in a good state and meet the Fitness for Human Habitation requirements. 

One of the biggest opportunities is via the management of internal air quality within rented properties.  We are currently working with a number of social housing landlords to help them make the internal air quality safer for their tenants. We are doing this with our smart goldeni technology which supports clean air initiatives by delivering insights into internal air quality.  

goldeni’s suite of IoT enabled sensors and systems can monitor temperature, carbon dioxide, monoxide and humidity that provide the property services teams with further insights on the environmental conditions within the home.  

High carbon monoxide levels are hazardous to human health, but other indoor air quality issues include high humidity which can be as a result of damp in the home and facilitates a breeding ground for known pathogens and viruses. High carbon dioxide levels demonstrate poor air flow in the property, simply advising the tenant to open a window will immediately improve the internal air quality and, in accordance with the Covid-19 guidance keep viral load levels in the home to a minimum and reduce the risk of contamination for those in the home. 

goldeni delivers real-time air quality data to property services teams to identify and advise of poor internal environmental conditions – looking after the tenant with health and wellbeing in mind. 

Poorly maintained buildings can have far-reaching economic and social implications for tenants and local communities. By taking a proactive approach to property maintenance that involves collecting and analysing property data, goldeni is a state-of-the-art technology that predicts faults before they occur.
