Repairs and maintenance (inc dampness/improvements and alterations eg central heating. double glazing)
Mr E complained that Trivallis failed to action a roof repair which has been ongoing for over 6 months.
The Ombudsman found that there had been a delay in Trivallis undertaking the repairs required. Furthermore, Trivallis had failed to provide regular and meaningful updates to Mr E. She said that this caused frustration and uncertainty to Mr E. She decided to settle the complaint without an investigation.
The Ombudsman sought and gained Trivallis agreement to provide the necessary apologies and explanations for the oversights, undertake the necessary repairs and offer to pay £75 to Mr E for his time and trouble in making his complaint to the Ombudsman within 2 weeks.
