Shared repairs and maintenance
If you can't reach an agreement
The Edinburgh Shared Repairs service can now help owners who can't reach agreement to undertake essential repairs to the common areas of their property.
You must be able to show that you have followed the process as described in the tenement toolkit and we will consider arranging repairs if we have the available resources and if a majority of the owners are in agreement for the Council to proceed.
If we do decide to enforce the repairs you can keep trying to reach an agreement with the other owners. There are several points in the process where you can stop and go ahead with the repairs privately instead.
