This process applies to tenants who have a Scottish Secure Tenancy, a short Scottish Secure Tenancy or occupants who have an occupancy agreement for temporary/supported accommodation with West Dunbartonshire Council.
The process lays out the procedures involved when carrying out repairs in circumstances where:
- The repair is the responsibility of the tenant;
- The damage to the property is due to wilful damage, neglect, misuse or abuse by the tenant, their family or visitors to the property; or
- The repair is required when moving out of a house to bring it up to an acceptable standard following wilful damage, neglect, misuse or abuse by the tenant, their family or visitors to the property; or
- The repair is necessary to make good unauthorised, unsafe or unsuitable alterations carried out by the tenant.
The specific objectives of the process will be to give clear guidance on the circumstances where a recharge becomes necessary.
