Rechargeable repairs
We are responsible for most, but not all repairs. There are some repairs that are your responsibility as the resident and this is set out in your tenancy agreement. We may carry out these repairs and jobs for you but will charge you an excess towards the cost of the work. We will always carry out repairs where damage is a result of normal wear and tear.

However, there are times when we find it necessary to charge residents for repairs carried out on their property. These types of repairs will usually be as the result of accidents, criminal damage, misuse, neglect or wilful damage. These may be caused by your own actions, a member of your household, a visitor, or a household pet.

Statutory compensation
In some cases, you have the right to claim compensation under the Right to Repair Scheme. Compensation will be paid if emergency or urgent works which are classed as ‘qualifying repairs,’ costing less than £250 (excluding VAT) are not completed within their target timescales. If we have not given you reason/s for not completing a qualifying repair (see below) within our target time, and the repair has been reported twice, you are entitled to compensation of £10. We will pay £2 for each extra day that the repair is delayed, up to a maximum of £50.
