10 Landlord responsibilities As your landlord the City of London is responsible for: Communal areas To effectively maintain communal areas. Please report communal repairs by telephoning or contacting your estate office. Inside your home (our fittings) This only includes the plumbing system, including pipe work, tanks, stopcocks, taps, baths, sinks, basins, cisterns and toilet fittings inside doors and their frames, skirting boards and kitchen cupboards central heating systems, immersion heaters and Ascot b heaters, Electrical wiring, plug sockets, light fittings and switches and entry phones. 10 Your new repairs service 2011

11 Tenant responsibilities Tenant responsibilities Tenants are responsible for their own fittings or improvements that have been made within their home. The City of London is not responsible for repairing or maintaining any fitting or improvement that you have made to your home. The City of London is also not responsible for repairing or replacing any item that has been damaged on purpose or neglected. If we carry out works which we are not obliged to do, the cost of such work will be recharged to the tenant and is called a rechargeable repair. For example, we may carry out repairs to damage caused by you, your family and/or visitors not taking care when in your home, on a rechargeable basis. You will be advised, where possible, of the approximate cost of the work and then you will receive an invoice once this work is carried out. Access to your home It is essential that you always allow staff to enter your property on scheduled appointments (including gas safety checks) and in emergency situations. Your new repairs service

12 Right to Repair The Right to Repair legislation applies to some repairs for tenants. We must tell you the date by which the repair will be completed. If we fail to meet these time limits, you will be entitled to ask us to get another contractor to do the work. In some circumstances you may be entitled to compensation. If the repair is not completed by the second contractor within the prescribed time you may be entitled to 10 compensation payment plus 2 for each day the repair is outstanding. The most compensation you can get for one job is 50. If you have any queries about the arrangements explained above, please speak to your Estate Officer. Please note: Only repairs that cost up to 250 are included in the scheme. Working days include Monday to Friday (but exclude weekends and bank holidays). 12 Your new repairs service 2011

14 Our performance targets To ensure that the City of London consistently meets its service standards and provides the best repairs service to its residents, we have a set of targets that we will work towards (see next page). These targets will be monitored jointly by staff and residents regularly. We will publish how we meet the targets in our Annual Report. It is very important that we only carry out the repairs listed over the next few pages. These are the repairs we are currently obliged to do. This ensures we keep to the budget we have for the repairs service, which is very important. These targets will help to make sure that our new repairs service is delivered to high standards across all estates. These targets were agreed by staff and residents, who will monitor them over the next year. If you would be interested in helping to monitor how well we deliver the repairs service, please contact the Resident Involvement Team on /3916 or No prior experience is needed, only your experience as a tenant and your interest in helping to improve things. 14 Your new repairs service 2011

21 After care service Linbrook Services Ltd is strongly committed to delivering a high quality repairs service at your home. Should you not be satisfied with the repair carried out, please contact the Customer Liaison Officer, Julie Newell, on FREEPHONE for further help and advice. Operatives will leave an after care card with this telephone number after each repair completed in tenants homes. Your new repairs service

22 Home owners As a leaseholder or freeholder living on one of the City of London s housing estates, you are responsible for all repairs within your own property. If you have a defect in your property that may be affecting other residents/ properties (such as a leak on any water pipes) you must arrange for your own contractor to attend as soon as you are aware of the problem. If you are a tenant of a home owner, your own landlord is responsible for repairs within your home, not the City of London. However, the City of London is responsible for the maintenance of communal areas. You can therefore report communal repairs on your estate by telephoning the repairs free phone number In addition, the City of London owns the freehold of all of its accommodation (except freehold properties) therefore it has the legal responsibility to maintain and repair outside items such as roofs, windows, lifts etc. Leaseholders must contribute financially to the cost of these improvement works. We have a dedicated Leaseholder Team that ensures all leaseholders are informed and consulted on works where they will be required to make a financial contribution (of over 250). You can contact the Leasehold Team on /3208 or 22 Your new repairs service 2011
