Tribunal Orders About Emergency Repairs

If you do not want to arrange for the repairs yourself, you can apply directly to the Tribunal for an urgent hearing about emergency repairs. The Tribunal can make a range of orders, such as:

  • The lessor carry out the emergency repairs.
  • You arrange for the emergency repairs to be done and the lessor pays for the repairs or reimburses you for their cost.
  • If you have already paid for emergency repairs, an order that the lessor reimburse you for this cost.

If you suffer financial loss or have been unable to use part of the premises or facilities because of the emergency repair problem, you could also request compensation or a rent decrease.
