The Association also agreed that it would confirm with Miss X the repairs that are needed and indicate to her the likely timeframe for these. The Association also agreed that it will prioritise any required repairs to Miss X’s’ property and will have these repairs completed as a matter of urgency. The Ombudsman accepted this as are solution of Miss X’s complaint.
