The AHA has a variety of roles and responsibilities
The AHA offers social rented housing and homes sold as partial ownership for local people on lower incomes whose needs cannot be met in the private housing market.
We strive to create an environment which enhances the quality of life of residents and encourages self-reliance. We aim to provide a customer-focused and efficient service to make sure all of our residents and partial owners are looked after well.
The Chief Executive’s role is to guide and manage the AHA to meet the aims, performance and vision of the company. The Chief Executive has a full oversight of the company as the AHA Manager reports to the Chief Executive to ensure the smooth running of the company. The Chief Executive works closely with the States of Alderney and Guernsey and is a key player in ensuring that more homes can be provided for local people.
Our housing manager deals with any issues that may arise during the tenancy of an AHA property as well as applications from new tenants.
The AHA manager's role is to provide an efficient, effective customer-focused service to their residents, to process housing applications, carry out review of tenancies and allocate tenancies for any vacant partial ownership and rented properties.
The AHA manager is responsible for keeping AHA rented properties in excellent condition and to make sure that everything is working correctly and to carry out any necessary repairs through local contractors and trades people.
We aim to empower our tenants and, under the tenancy agreement, some repairs may fall under the resident’s responsibility. Our repair responsibility tool shows what the AHA is responsible for and what our residents are responsible for.
The Finance team at GHA support the AHA who are integral as they process the rent from residents and payments of those in the partial ownership scheme. They also ensure invoices are paid and handle our bank loans.
The AHA manager with CE and board support is responsible for identifying new properties and developments that may be suitable for AHA use. If these developments are approved then the AHA co-ordinates project management responsibility for the builds or renovations and for seeing projects through to completion.
If you have a property, development or plot of land you feel may be suitable for the AHA, please visit the Contact us page and fill out an enquiry form.
