Housing Repairs

Time to do the work

This depends on the type of repairs needed. There are no fixed time limits, but repairs should be carried out within a ‘reasonable time’. Certain repairs, such as burst pipes, should be carried out urgently.

Councils and housing associations often set out target times to complete repairs in tenancy agreements or on their website. These give a good idea of what “reasonable time” means for all landlords to carry out a repair.
