Repairs that are your responsibility

Rooftop Housing Group don't have to fix damage caused by you or your guests. If they do repair something you've damaged, you can be charged for this. If you think you or a family member will struggle to complete a repair, Rooftop can do it for you but we will charge for this work, plus an administration fee on top, all of which will need to be paid for up-front.  It may be cheaper for you to find a local tradesman to do the work on your behalf.

 

There are also a number of minor repairs that we expect you to complete, such as:

Unblocking sinks, baths and toilets

Repairing or replacing toilet seats

Tightening loose waste fittings

Tap repairs. I.e. replacing washers

Replacing sealant to baths, etc

Fixing craked or loose tiles

Fixing loose kitchen draws or doors

Replacing lightbulb, fuses  or resetting a tripped fuse board

Repairs to internal doors
