Quality of Service
We use fully approved contractors to carry out all repairs and we continuously monitor them to ensure a prompt, high quality and value for money service is provided. A Survey Form is issued to all tenants who report a repair to help us monitor satisfaction with the service and to continue to make improvements wherever required.
Right To Repair
Tenants have a right to repair for certain qualifying repairs. This is a legal right which places a legal duty on the Association to respond to the ‘qualifying repairs’ within a set timescale. Details of the qualifying repairs can be found below.
