A local homeowner claims he is hundreds of pounds out of pocket after repairing a council house.
George McFarlane, a 71-year-old retired electrical service engineer, reported damage to the authority regarding his daughter’s gutters in her home in Craigie, Perthshire.
After filing the complaint in March 2016, Mr McFarlane said he is now hundreds of pounds out of pocket, as Perth and Kinross Council is not fully compensating the repairs.
He said: “We reported a complaint to the council more than two years ago about the gutters. The damage was letting water throughout the house and causing dampness.
“I have had to take money out of my own pocket to fix it, only for the council to reimburse only half of what I paid.
“I had to vacate my family during the middle of the night once. The noise of the water was so bad I had to take children out of their home at 1am.”
Mr McFarlane said council officers told him only half of the damage would be paid for as two of the four buildings in the block are privately owned.
A council spokesman said: “We are aware of the repairs required to this block of flats and have been working with other owners within the block to agree to the works proceeding.
“We are keeping our tenant up to date with progress.”
