Right to Repair
From the 30th September 2002 the Scottish Government deemed that tenants of the Association have the right to have certain repairs carried out within a designated timescale. This is called the “Right to Repair Scheme”
The Right to Repair covers certain repairs known as “Qualifying Repairs” which are estimated to cost up to £350. In total there are 17 “Qualifying Repairs”.
If the contractor instructed by the Association fails to meet these timescales, the tenant may be entitled to compensation.
The Scottish Government has published a leaflet on Right to Repair that you may find useful.
