Mutual repairs - council housing and sold properties

Dundee City Council has an obligation to undertake mutual repairs (things like stairwell paintwork, guttering repairs and roof repairs) to maintain its own stock – and owners in blocks where there are a mix of tenants and owners are obliged to pay a share of the mutual element of this work.

There are often queries from both owners and tenants when this sort of work (known as External Cyclical Maintenance) is undertaken – last year, for example, I had a number of queries from residents in the Corso Street/Abbotsford area and also Fyffe Street/Benvie Road/Mitchell Street area.

The council has now published useful guides that you can download below :
