Statutory Repairs in Edinburgh

An internal audit review of the service has exposed specific areas of failure in the current service.

The Council's Property Conservation Service steps in where tenants cannot agree on repairs on common parts of a building - for example where not all tenement owners can agree on undertaking repairs to the roof for which they are jointly liable.  Legislation enables the Conservation Service to step in with a statutory notice to undertake urgent or necessary work and to apportion the charge to all liable owners.   

An internal audit review of the service has exposed specific areas of failure in the current service.  You can read the report, along with its recommendations here and get more information on statutory notices here.

So that's how it's done. Repairs which need mutual agreement can sometimes be a headache, especially when the two parties do not agree. But in reality, something needs to be done ASAP, or else the parties will languish in more problems brought about by delayed repairs.
