Q My tenement stairwell is damaged, and I’m concerned that my neighbours may refuse to help fix it. If there is a factor, speak to them first as they can manage any necessary repairs and payment on behalf of you and your neighbours. If there is no factor then you and your neighbours will need to arrange the repair. One person should take the lead (usually the party most affected by the disrepair) and negotiate with everyone in the tenement. An informal chat with your neighbours to decide who takes the lead is best.
