HA brings a repairs contract on 18,000 homes back in house

The country’s largest housing association is bringing a repairs contract for 18,000 homes in London, Essex and the Midlands back in house.

Clarion Housing has decided to end its current agreement with Mitie and Wates from November. The two contractors have delivered responsive repairs on the homes since 2015, when they took over the work from Kier whose multi-year contract was ended early.
