Repairs

You and Saffron share responsibility for looking after your home and making repairs.

We are responsible for most repairs, but you are also responsible for some including:

  • Decorating the inside of your home
  • Keeping the inside and outside of your home clean
  • Fixing damage caused by members of your family and visitors
  • Some minor repairs

We are responsible for:

  • Maintaining the structure and exterior of your home
  • Your home’s main services
  • Communal areas

Day to day repairs

These are general repairs reported to us by tenants, staff, non-executive directors and others. They include repairs like re-washering a tap and sticking doors. Most of these are done by appointment.

When you moved into your Saffron home…

When you moved into your Saffron home, a Saffron representative will have given you a copy of the Saffron Tenancy Agreement. This will set out the rights and obligations that you and Saffron bear in relation to repairs to your home.

Where a repair is not considered normal wear and tear, there is likely to be a charge. This can happen if you, members of your household, or visitors have damaged the property, or in some other situations. In most cases, you will have to pay the charge before we carry out the repairs. If the repair is covered by Right to Repair legislation, or is in the home of a particularly vulnerable person, we will make arrangements for you to pay after the work has been carried out.
