Repairs and Maintenance

Your rent includes a contribution towards the cost of repair and maintenance at your home.


In general, we are responsible for bigger jobs, including:

  • damage caused by storms, flooding, fire, break-in or vandalism (but not your personal items)
  • repairs to new properties in the first year after being built
  • repair and maintenance of external and communal areas
  • larger facilities and fittings

Your repair and maintenance responsibilities include items such as:

  • accidental damage caused by your, your household or visitors
  • personal possessions
  • individual fittings and equipment
  • smaller consumables
  • flooring and decoration

This is only a snapshot. Please see the full list in the Tenant Handbook.
