Right to compensation
The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 introduced Regulations regarding the tenant’s 'Right to Compensation for Improvements'.
If you carry out certain improvements to your home, after gaining permission, you are legally entitled to compensation when you end your tenancy with us.
The Regulations give clear guidance on the types of improvements that would qualify for compensation and a formula for working out the depreciated value of the improvements.
As long as you don't have any outstanding rechargeable repair accounts and rent arrears, you wuold receive the payment when you hand in your keys.
Details of the procedure for seeking permission to make improvements and claiming compensation are given in the Association’s Right to Compensation for Improvement Policy.
