We’ve got lots of experience of working with other housing providers and their customers, we have compiled the most frequent questions we get asked about NFS.
Will the service charge for furniture continued to be covered under Universal Credit?
Yes, under Universal Credit the service change for furniture will still be included. For more information about this click here to read our Universal Credit service charge guidance documents for landlords.
Can we create our own options bands for our customers?
Yes, there are flexible packages that suit a range of circumstances for both customers and housing providers, you can create your own option bands. The weekly charge varies depending on the furniture option chosen and most providers add a charge to this.
How do I procure your service?

Where do you operate?
We provide our service across the whole of the UK. We’ve got the flexibility to take on contracts from one property to thousands.
Do many customers steal or damage the items provided?
No, very few customers steal or damage the items. Last year we had over 50,000 items in customers’ homes, but the number of products stolen or wilfully damaged was very small. Our pricing policy means we take on the risk of this happening which means no recharges or cost for you for any stolen or wilfully damaged products.
