The number of social landlords being stung with enforcement action for the same repair jobs on the same properties is on the rise due to labour shortages and supply chain issues, lawyers have said.
Lawyers have told Inside Housing that the challenges mean landlords are not getting outstanding repairs done in agreed timescales, leading to tenant solicitors issuing additional enforcement actions for these jobs because the associations have breached the terms of settlements.
When a tenant brings legal action against their social landlord over the condition of their home and the association settles, it will generally agree to pay damages, reasonable costs and do any outstanding repairs within a specific period of time.
