Repairs notice

- a notice which can be served on the owner of a listed building in poor condition, specifying works which must be undertaken, and a timescale for their completion. If the notice is not complied with, it can be used as a forerunner to compulsory purchase.

An interesting and informative Study of Repairs Notices was undertaken by Bob Kindred, on behalf of the Association of Conservation Officers (now IHBC). see compensation.
