Decent Homes StandardIn 2000 the government set out a new target for the condition of all social housing called the Decent Homes Standard. It states that for a home to be 'decent' it should have reasonably modern facilities (for example, a kitchen under 20 years old or a bathroom under 30 years old) and be structurally sound. It also states that homes should offer both effective insulation and efficient heating. This standard is designed to meet minimum requirements of repair and facilities.
