Major Works Consultation
Equity Housing Group has a responsibility for maintaining some common and structural parts of its buildings and communal parts of its estates. This includes immediate common parts such as roads and parking areas. We advise you to check and familiarise yourself with your lease agreement to understand who has obligations for repairs and maintenance to the external part of the building/block and/or estate. In accordance with our obligations Equity will consult with all homeowners about any proposed and planned major works to a block and/or estate, where the cost of the work exceeds the prescribed amount.
Under the terms of your lease, leaseholders are required to pay a proportion of the costs towards repairs, maintenance and where required, pay into a sinking fund for replacement of components as specified in the lease agreement. In addition leaseholders may be required to pay for improvement works where the lease allows this. Please refer to your lease agreement for further details.
