6. Legal Aid Impact Test

Social landlords will seek the co-operation of tenants before any new fire and smoke detectors are installed. It is considered unlikely that there will be a significant increase in tenants raising complaints and therefore it is unlikely there will be any significant impact on the legal aid fund. If social tenants have reason to be unhappy with their landlord, the normal route of complaint is through the Scottish Public Services ombudsman.

Owner occupiers will be responsible for arranging for any new fire and smoke detectors to be installed in their own properties. If an owner is unhappy with the product or the installation work, the first route of complaint would be with the supplier or installer. Again it is considered unlikely that there will be any significant impact on the legal aid fund.
