Communal repair, safety and maintenance

Generally, as a leaseholder you are responsible for repairs inside your home and for items only you use. Brent Council is responsible for repairing and maintaining the structure, outside and shared parts of the building you live in, the cost of which is recovered through your service charges or major works invoices
