Angus Council signs new responsive repairs and voids contract
A new repairs contract that aims to improve the service that tenants currently receive has been agreed by Angus Council.
Beginning on April 1, the three-year responsive repairs and voids contract could be extended further to 2026.
Following a contract tender in late 2020, the successful contractors are Derek McNulty Ltd for the Arbroath, Carnoustie & Monifieth areas, and MPS Housing Ltd for the Montrose, Brechin, Forfar and Kirriemuir areas.
Works will include day-to-day repairs, maintenance and minor works to the council’s housing stock, including common areas, garages, and external areas. The contractors will provide a 24-hour service every day of the year, including public holidays. The contractors will also carry out works to our void or empty properties when there are changes of tenancy.
The contractors will work under a code of conduct and the council will monitor compliance and standards of work through tenant satisfaction surveys and inspections.
Due to current coronavirus restrictions, the council said it can only carry out emergency repairs at this time and until further notice.
The situation is being continuously monitored to allow for a return to a full service as soon as restrictions are lifted.
