TENANTS of homes that are being updated by Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing are concerned about the cost of repairs.
KNH is rewiring properties on Fernside Avenue and installing a ground heat-source system that will supply heating to homes in the area.
It has agreed to compensate residents for damage to their homes.
They will get £30 per wall, up to a maximum of £60 per room, as well as a £20 disturbance allowance.
But some believe that is not enough.
Martin Leonard, a Conservative campaigner, lives in Waterloo but has been approached by concerned tenants in Almondbury.
He said: “The damage to almost every room in the house cannot be managed, even on this budget.
“The residents that have approached me have decorated their homes to a high standard and I’m sure that any right-minded person would agree that they should be brought back to that same standard.”
But a KNH spokeswoman said the amounts had been agreed with tenants’ representatives.
She said: “We are responsible for repairing any structural damage or plasterwork.
“The actual amount someone receives will depend on how much decorating will be required.
“This is assessed by a tenant liaison officer, who inspects each room affected and completes all the paperwork.
“The final amount may be less than originally assessed if a tenant owes rent.
“The compensation policy was agreed by the KNH board and tenants’ representatives several years ago, and to date, it’s been well received.
“However, if anyone has an issue with the scheme or needs extra help with decorating, they should contact KNH directly.”
