Public health housing issues

Tolerable standard and work notices

The tolerable standard is the legal minimum habitable standard and is designed to make sure all properties meet basic standards of public health, comfort, and safety.

Work notices can be served so that essential work is done to bring a property up to the tolerable standard.

These notices may be used for fabric repairs such as to the roof, down pipes, dry rot and or for the provision of services such as installing hot and cold water for the first time or installing a bath or shower.

Certain types of notices on properties can affect how much of a grant could be awarded help with the work.
