Compensation for Dehumidifier usage within Council Homes

We have reviewed our procedure for compensating our tenants for electricity usage when we have to use a dehumidifier following a flood within the property. 

 

In circumstances where a person qualifies for compensation and has arrears, either of rent or council tax, any compensation payment will normally be paid directly to the rent account or council tax accounts and the tenant informed accordingly.

 

For full and detailed information on all tenancy related issues and most frequently asked questions - including those mentioned here, please refer to the Tenant Handbook 2012 within the 'Downloadable Documents' section at the bottom of this page.
