Repairs

Please remember that the council is only responsible for keeping the structure and outside of your leasehold property repaired. You will soon be able to request a repair via I-Housing, but for now you can visit our repairs page for more information, or email us at housing.repairs@arun.gov.uk, or call us on 01903 737827.

Gas safety

When you become a leaseholder you are responsible for carrying out an annual gas safety by a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer. Leaseholders who sublet their property are legally responsible for ensuring that all gas appliances provided by them for their tenants are safety checked every year by a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer.

Buildings Insurance

As the owner of the freehold of your building the Council need to make sure that it is properly insured. We do this by insuring your home on our District block policy. Information about the current buildings insurance policy and a summary of cover is available on request. As all leaseholders are insured on this policy they may request a claim form and information from the Council Insurance Officer at the Council, but should subsequently correspond directly with Zurich Municipal regarding their claim. Claims should be submitted to Zurich as soon as possible after an event occurs. Quotes or receipts can be submitted later. You can view the Leasehold 2017 Key Facts.pdf [pdf] 53KB for more information.
