BHA builds and manages homes to rent to suit a range of lifestyles, personal needs and family sizes that people can afford. We do so in communities throughout Berwickshire and are ever keen to expand the number and choice of homes available. We are passionate about our role in providing individuals, couples and whole families with a home in which they can live their life to the full in a safe, comfortable and attractive setting.

We are a charity, so the rents we receive pay to keep our homes in great condition through our repairs service and by our planned maintenance service, which ensures our homes are always modern and comfortable. 

While we do all we can to improve opportunities in each of the communities we serve, we look to our tenants to pay their rent, look after their home and play a positive role in their neighbourhood to help us achieve our vision of 'Creating Thriving Rural Communities'

Our tenants have an opportunity to help shape the future by getting involved in what we do through our Tenant Volunteers and Scrutiny Panel.

We have been made aware of a phone scam where people are being contacted or left messages by bogus HMRC officials. Apparently the fraudsters tell their victims that thousands of pounds are owed, going back to 2006, and unless they pay immediately the police will arrive on their doorsteps within half an hour; they will be arrested and go to jail; also, if not paid the bill will double. It is important to know that HMRC would not take this action.

HMRC, and the Action Fraud / Police Helpline are aware of the scam and have advised an investigation will be carried out. But, in the meantime, we think it is important that as many people as possible know about this. And do not make any payments without contacting HMRC direct on 0300 200 3300

One person was left a message from a Heather Gray of HMRC saying that they needed to call 0203 129 1431 urgently otherwise solicitor’s action would be taken. Luckily the client was astute enough to realise that this did not sound correct and contacted CAB who then gave her our number.

If you are at all concerned, please contact your local CAB, or police. Or HMRC on 0300 200 3300
