Right to repair

You can use the right to repair scheme to get small repair jobs fixed quickly. If we do not carry out repair works within the target time, you may have the right to claim.

If you think your repair would come under the right to repair, you need to contact HTS (Property & Environment) Ltd.

The repair must cost less than £250 to carry out.
