Living independently: repairs and adaptations
Repairs, decorations and adaptations
The help available to residents depends on whether you rent or own your home and who you rent it from.
Tenants and residents can get advice, information and apply for grants. The council can help older and disabled decorating costs and assist residents with adaptations and equipment to their homes.
Other tenantsYou should report any repairs to your landlord. If your landlord refuses to carry out an essential repair, view our advice for private tenants.
You may be eligible for help from the council's Home Improvement Agency.
