Major works 


This work is subject to change and some works may be brought forward or pushed back depending on resources and other factors.


Major works include such things as roof renewal, installation of door entry systems, window replacement, decoration to communal areas etc.

 

Will I be consulted of any major work?

If the work will cost you more than £250 we must consult with you under Section 20 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985.

You are entitled to be formally consulted before we plan to carry out any major works. We will send you detailed information on the major repair work. We will ask you to make comments and you can inspect further details of the work we intend to carry out.

Under Section 20 of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 we are obliged to send you two letters. The first letter is called a 'Notice of Intention'. This letter informs you of the major works we intend to carry out. We must give you a period of 30 days to make any comments in writing. The second letter is called a 'Notice of Estimates'. This letter informs you of the estimated costs of the work.

What happens in emergency situations?

In an emergency or in circumstances beyond our control such as the collapse of an entire roof or a burst water main we may not have time to consult with you before we carry out work.

In situations like this we will send you a letter explaining why we cannot carry out consultation, giving reasons and setting out the potential costs of the work. We will still need to obtain dispensation for consultation from the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal (LVT) but we will attempt to take all reasonable steps in the meantime.
