Property inspection video

We’re changing the way we inspect Gateway properties when you’re moving from one CGA property to another through Select Move.

You’ll now be asked to record a short video showing us all around the property, which our Select Move Team will then review before a decision is made.

You’ll be sent an example video to watch before recording your own, with instructions and a checklist of things to include. This video will also tell you the WhatsApp number your video should be sent to for checking. If you aren't able to record a video, please speak to the team about an in-person inspection.

Your video will be reviewed within 28 days, and the Select Move Team will be in touch with any necessary feedback and to confirm their decision about your move.  If your video shows that your home is in an unsatisfactory condition, has been damaged or alternations have been made without permission you may not be allowed to re-apply to Select Move until the issues have been sorted out. You have the right to appeal a decision you disagree with.

Please be assured that once your video has been verified, it will be deleted.
