Traditionally, housing management was (and still is) associated with practical, operational issues such as rent collecting, allocation, and maintenance, but later on other, less operational tasks and activities were also included, such as promoting liveability and community involvement, and even portfolio development. housing management consists of a variety of activities, which can be divided into several categories, including technical management (maintenance, renovation, etc.), social management (housing allocation, marketing, etc.), financial management (treasury, rent policy), and tenure management (letting, buying, selling). Housing Management focuses primarily on managing tenants and leaseholders across the sector; allocating housing to new and existing tenants, providing appropriate tenancy agreements and providing housing support, information and advice.
