Reporting A Repair
Triangle are responsible for most repairs to properties, however, there are some exceptions.
Some minor repairs are the responsibility of the tenant for example changing a tap washer or a light bulb. For more information regarding tenant repairing obligations please click on the following link….
If a repair is carried out by Triangle which is then proven to be the tenant’s responsibility or the result of misuse, the association may recharge the tenant for these works. Any invoices for a rechargeable repair will be accompanied by a letter explaining the recharge as well as a breakdown of the costs. The association will only charge the actual cost of the repair.
If you are still unsure whether a repair is your responsibility, please contact Property Services and our team will be glad to help.
