The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 introduced a Right to Repairs Scheme for Tenants of Registered Social Landlords to ensure that small, urgent repairs are carried out within a given timescale.
This is work we plan to carry out on a regular basis. Currently we carry out cyclical work for servicing gas fires and boilers, external painting, electrical checks and grounds maintenance. Our aim is to extend this to other areas such as fencing, gutters and rhones, footpaths etc so that we can reduce one off repairs and improve the general environment.
If you plan to carry out improvements to your home, you must contact us to seek our approval before you carry out this work.
