2. Repairs during the right to buy process

Once we have assessed your application to buy your council property and written to you to say that you are entitled to purchase your property, we will only carry out limited repair work to the property.

We will make sure that the gas and electric supplies are safe, repair heating breakdowns and plumbing leaks, and keep the property weather and water tight.  

The property will be removed from any of our improvement programmes.
