Repairs & Maintenance

Fyne Homes Ltd has a statutory responsibility, under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2010 to ensure that its houses are wind and watertight and, in all other aspects, fit for human habitation and to keep the house in such condition throughout the tenancy. The Association also has a duty to inspect the house and identify work necessary to comply with these statutory responsibilities and to inform the tenant of such work.

The Association recognises the importance to tenants of a high quality repairs service and will seek to ensure that repairs are carried out as per the specified programmes and standards set.

We will manage our business so that tenants’ homes as a minimum, meet the Scottish Housing Quality Standard (SHQS) and continue to meet it thereafter, and when they are allocated, are always clean tidy and in a good state of repair.

We will manage our business so that tenants’ homes are well maintained, with repairs and improvements carried out when required, and tenants are given reasonable choices about when work is done.
