Important information for tenants regarding coronavirus

The Manchester Apartments office


We’re pleased to have re-opened our office. Our absolute priority is keeping you and our employees safe. Our office will look a little different to when you were last here and that's because we’ve put some safety measures in place to ensure your safety. Please pay attention to the signage and remember to stay 2 metres apart when you visit the office. We are asking visitors to wear a face covering and due to reduced seating capacity, please don't arrive in a group of more than 2 people.

Here are some things you need to know before you visit us: 

Please pay attention to the signage in buildings and follow the advice given:

  • Keep 2 metres away from others
  • Only touch what you need to and be careful touching buttons, doors and handrails
  • Wash your hands after passing through corridors and lobbies
  • If there is a lift, please follow the guidance in the lift or take the stairs if you can
  • Keep to the left when passing others in corridors and on staircases
  • Staff will take extra precautions when visiting your apartment for maintenance including washing hands before entry and wearing gloves
  • Report all essential maintenance via FixFlo

We understand that a number of tenants have may concerns regarding their tenancy and the current situation with coronavirus

If you are having problems paying your rent, please let your Property Manager know as soon as possible. You will be asked fill in a form and attach any supporting evidence you have. This can be a letter from your employer, your most recent payslip and a copy of your employment contract. If you’re unsure who your property manager is, please have a look at our contact page.

Although all rents are payable by tenants and there is no official policy within our contract for early termination, we do sympathise in these exceptional circumstances and do want to support as best we can.

We will try and help you in any way we can during this difficult time. If you feel you need to leave your tenancy before its end date, we might be able to assist you. Please speak with your Property Manager.
