Each year we estimate that we carry out repairs in 350 homes that are not our responsibility. Along with increasing the overall cost of our service, they also increase the time it takes to carry out other repairs. We recognise the circumstances leading to a chargeable repair can vary greatly. For example, it might be because of an accident or malicious damage, because of this we want our process to be as flexible as possible.The purpose of this procedure is to set out when Tai Calon Community Housing will consider a charge for carrying out works or other services that are not part of our contracted repairing obligations, and to explain the expectations about payment.
