Repairs to communal areas

As a result of right to buy legislation there are many buildings in the area which are shared by Council tenants and owner occupiers. Owner occupiers are responsible for their share of the repair and maintenance costs associated with common areas such as roofs, paths, entry stairs and doors.

Repairs

In emergency situations communal repairs will be carried out by the Council and all owner occupiers will be recharged as appropriate.

In non-emergency situations, owners will be approached with estimated costs and their support enlisted to complete the required works.

Improvements

All improvements have to be by mutual agreement between all involved parties with the Council providing a scheme of assistance offering advice of both a technical and financial nature.
