The Housing Executive is responsible for 85,000 homes.

Yesterday's statement by Communities Minister Caral Ni Chuilin was very significant.

In moving to reform the landlord function of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, the minister and the wider Executive are taking a major step towards removing a long-standing barrier to investment.

Much like Northern Ireland Water's infrastructure needs, the federation has long held the view that the maintenance needs of the 85,000 Northern Ireland Housing Executive properties cannot be met through the Executive's capital budget alone.
