  • in a good state of repair,
  • safe and secure,
  • adequately heated, fuel efficient and well insulated,
  • well managed,
  • located in attractive and safe environments,
  • as far as possible suit the specific requirements of the household, (e.g. specific disabilities), and
  • contain up-to-date kitchens and bathrooms.
