From 30 September 2002, under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001, Scottish secure tenants and short Scottish secure tenants have the right to have small urgent repairs carried out by the Association within a given timescale.  This is called the ‘Right to Repair’ scheme.  You should have received a leaflet about the scheme when you signed your Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement, however, a copy of it can be obtained by clicking on the link below.

If the Association fails to carry out certain repairs within required timescales, you may be entitled to compensation (subject to conditions).
