Right to Repair
All Registered Social Landlords such as Kendoon Housing Association have a statutory “Right to Repair” duty as set out in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001. When you advise us of a repair problem, we will tell you whether the repair falls under this scheme.
Right to Repair means that:
If qualifying repairs are not attended to within the agreed timescale you have the right to appoint another contractor from the Associations approved list to carry out the work. You are also eligible for compensation for the inconvenience if the repair is not carried out within the set timescale.
We have produced a Right to Repair Information Leaflet to provide details of the regulations.
