Repair costs for leasehold properties
Leaseholders have to pay some of the costs of repair work done by the Council. There are two types of repair that the council must do: day-to-day repairs and major works.
If your share of the cost of a repair is more than £250, this is classed as a major repair.
Your share of the cost of day-to-day repairs will be included in your annual service charge bill.
When we have carried out a major repair, we will send you an invoice when the work is completed.
If the communal areas of your block are damaged through vandalism you should report this to your local housing team and to your local police station for a crime reference number.
If it is proven that a repair was needed because of vandalism, you will not normally have to contribute towards this cost.
