Repairs the council is responsible for

We are responsible for arranging repairs when a communal area or the structure of a building is at risk.

Repairs we are responsible for include:

  • repairs to the exterior of buildings, such as roofs and walls
  • burst or leaking external pipes and shared service pipes
  • washers and main stop valves to the block
  • clearing blockages or repairing leaks to soil stacks, rainwater pipes and gutters
  • joists, damp proof membranes or concrete floor slabs
  • internal and external window frames, and glazing to communal windows
  • communal decoration, doors, lifts and staircases
  • other communal spaces shared by tenants and leaseholders such as rubbish chutes, electrics and lighting
