When a repair is undertaken that is considered the tenant’s responsibility then all costs incurred will be fully rechargeable.
Where damage to the fabric of the building is the result of a break-in, vandalism or a dispute then this must be reported to the police. You will be issued a Rechargeable Repair Notification which must be completed and returned to the office to allow an assessment of the details surrounding the repair. Where a repair has arisen following break-in, attempted break-in, vandalism or a dispute, a Police log number or Crime Incident Number must be provided. Depending on the circumstances, a repair may still remain fully rechargeable even after a Police log number or Crime Incident Number has been provided.
